Supporting Tom Henson Charity Football Match

On Saturday June 15th at Bolsover Town Sports and Social Club, the Tom Henson Charity Football Match took place

We had the honor and pleasure of supporting this great cause. 4 of our Community First Responders (CFRs), along with our mascot ‘Rory’ went along to help support this football match and took the opportunity to teach CPR and defib use to attendees of this event. We were also supported by John W from East Midlands Ambulance Service.

Back in April, Tom Henson Defib Map donated us with 2 brand new defibs for our CFR’s to use when out responding to 999 calls.
