Helping us financially or in kind
Like all Community First Responder teams in the UK, Ettington CFR Scheme is a voluntary organisation in which members freely give their personal time and where we are funded entirely by public donations and other community funding initiatives. Keeping ourselves financially viable is a constant task with much of the activity being labour intensive. This is, of course on top of our primary role of providing emergency medical care.
There are a number of ways in which you can support us financially:
- By making a Donation
We gratefully welcome donations from individuals, businesses and fundraising organisations.
- By hosting a Collection Box
Collection boxes are hosted by local businesses and are a good source of funding for us. They are virtually maintenance-free for the business manager/owner as we manage swapping of the boxes and provide the manager/owner with a receipt of the sum collected.
- By providing Goods or Services for Fundraising Events
We run a number of fundraising events which often include a raffle with prizes. If you run a business and can provide a prize for one of our raffles – either goods or services – please get in touch with us.
- By providing Goods or Services for team use
If you run a business that provides goods or services that the team uses or could use either free of charge or at a discounted rate we would be very grateful to hear from you.
- By organising a Fundraising Event
If you are prepared to organise a fund-raising event with Ettington CFR Scheme as the sole or part beneficiary, we would be very grateful.
