A year of mayoral fundraising has seen Newport Community First Responders receive a cheque for over £2,000

At the Newport Town Council Annual Meeting earlier this month, newly re-elected mayor, Councillor Ian Perry handed Newport Community First Responders a cheque for £2,139.

The money had been raised for the mayor's chosen charity during his 2023-2024 civic year at various events in the town.

First Responders have been playing a vital role in helping to save people's lives since 2001 – providing local help in getting to 999 calls to support the ambulance service, and are often the first on the scene.

The Newport group attend on average 10 incidents a week in their specialised 4x4 vehicle – ranging from car crashes to cardiac arrests.
