Thanks to the great support from our community we have raised the money to buy a 4×4 car for our scheme.

Sonning Common CFR

Sonning Common Community First Responders are unpaid volunteers trained by the ambulance service to attend serious, potentially life-threatening, medical emergencies. We attend calls in and around Sonning Common and the surrounding villages of South Oxfordshire, usually within 8 minutes of our home base although we do travel further if requested to do so. Being such a rural area our 4×4 scheme car will help us reach patients in inclement weather.

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:

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.

Date: End September

Name of event: Handover of Scheme Vehicle

Location: Sonning Common Garage

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.
