Story

Folksworth Responders was established in November 2015.

Myself and Tony both Communty First Responders attend 999 calls around the Peterborough area usually the areas of Folksworth, Stilton, Yaxley, Sawtry, Glatton, Holme and even reached out to the Ortons and city centre! Together we on average volunteer 450-500 Hours a month. Between october 2016 - October 2017 we attended 143 999 calls in the area! This year alone we have been dispatched to 7 cardiac arrests and multiple times we had to use our defibrillator during Resuscitation. We provide urgent care in the critical minutes before an ambulance arrives on scene. We enjoy what we do but now we need YOUR Help.

We have until 3rd December 2017 when i will be sky diving out of a plane at 13,000 feet to raise a target of £2000 for a new defibrillator plus other equiptment before ours runs out of date - I know what you're thinking ... why jump out of a perfectly good plane... i guess i must be crazy especailly since im terrified of heights!!!!

Please help us continue to respond to these calls alongside the East Of England Ambulance Service. You never know... you could be the next patient myself or tony attend to. We need your help. Please help us make the difference in our community. Thank you.
