Valerie Thorpe

Scheme Fundraiser


Valerie is the scheme Fundraiser. Being a councillor she knows many people and is able to generate us some much needed income.

Not just that, Valerie also contacts local businesses on our behalf and gets donations on our behalf.

Valerie arranges CPR demonstations in and around the local area which also brings in funds for us.





Community First Responders



In addition to our committee members who are also responders, we presently have 24 active Community First Responders in various locations and available at various times of the day and night. Here are some of the group together with CFR01, the old  scheme car. Electric cars are currently being evaluated by CFR schemes across EMAS, and the Amber CFRs have access to two of them.
