We are very grateful for our local community support. This enables us to have the equipment we need to help in an emergency.
Inkpen Community First Responders are all unpaid volunteers who live in the Inkpen area. When we are available, we cover any medical 999 calls that arise in our area. We provide support for anything from breathing difficulties and chest pain to any other medical emergency while waiting for the ambulance to arrive. Inkpen is a friendly rural Berkshire village situated between Hungerford and Newbury. So far our generous community has raised over £2000 for their local Responders.
What we do
We provide basic life support care until the arrival of the ambulance. We carry oxygen and a defibrillator as well as other medical equipment and pain relief. We can be with a patient very quickly – providing emergency care in the critical time before the ambulance arrives.
We are very grateful to all those who have donated money, time and energy to the local CFR scheme for this community. We would particularly like to thank:
- Inkpen Village Hall Market
- Team Inkpen – www.teaminkpen.co.uk
If you live locally, or run a local business, and could help us with our fundraising we would love to hear from you.
Some CFRs run events where you can ‘meet the team’.
This area will display all events that the South Central Ambulance Charity are aware of.
CFRs often get asked to attend events such as a village fete or fair in order to demonstrate vital life saving skills and collect on behalf of our charity.
If you are organising an event and would like us to attend, please email us.
Some schemes have volunteers who are qualified to provide first aid cover at local events. To find out if we can do this for you please email us.
