£500 grant to the Steyning Area First Responders (SAFeR)

The Rotary Club of Shoreham and Southwick has provided a £500 grant to the Steyning Area First Responders (SAFeR) to help cover the cost of team training for the forthcoming year.

As Steyning no longer has it’s own Rotary Club, The Rotary Club of Shoreham and Southwick offered financial assistance towards training the six volunteers who last year attended over 200 emergencies.

SAFeR is a local charity, entirely funded by donations from the local community, which supports the Steyning team of emergency responders and maintains a network of pubic access defibrillators. SAFeR’s volunteer responders are fully trained by the South East Coast Ambulance Service – SECAmb.

They provide an essential service supporting the Ambulance Service in the local community, and are often able to get to an emergency before the ambulance arrives. Every year SAFeR responders attend numerous falls, strokes, heart attacks and other medical emergencies in and around the Steyning area and beyond.

For more details on how to join those Steyning residents who are already members of The Rotary Club of Shoreham & Southwick, please contact:

Tony Wagstaff, Rotary Club President, and other Rotarians, hand over the cheque to the SAFeR responder team.
