| Make a Donation to Ettington CFR Scheme
Like all Community First Responder teams in the UK, we are funded entirely by public donations and community funding initiatives.
Keeping ourselves funded and financially viable is a constant battle with much of the activity being labour intensive. This is, of course, on top of our primary role of providing emergency medical care.
As well as the purchase of new equipment, we have an ongoing programme to replace equipment that has reached the end of its serviceable life either because it has worn out or reached its expiry date.
