Farmageddon Runners Complete the 10K run

Thank you to Charlotte, Kayla, Emma and Tom for taking part in the Farmageddon run to raise money for Youth Sport Trust and our CFR group. This year the event was held near Market Harborough.

It was a lot tougher, this year, and included wading through chest high stream, steep muddy slopes and obstacle climbs. I think the colour of their tee shirts sums it up!

Our New Projects

Or new project is to replace all the dilapidated kit bags we use for carrying our essential equipment. The oxygen bottles are fairly heavy so the bags need to be robust and they must also be wipe-clean to comply with infection control procedures. The most suitable bag that we have been able to find costs around £200 each and we have 13 to replace.

We would also like to buy a hi-vis jacket, with pockets, and a sweatshirt  for each responder. Currently, in the group there are 17 fully Trained Responders with another 4 waiting to get onto a training course.
