Cakes, tea and coffee were enjoyed during the afternoon, and £260 was raised for CCFR through a raffle and donations.

People also had the opportunity to learn more information about CCFR, which is made up of highly-trained local volunteers who respond to emergency calls and provide vital care to patients in the minutes before an ambulance arrives.

Community first responders, who work in conjunction with East Midlands Ambulance Service, can deliver life-saving intervention and defibrillation to patients in cardiac arrest.
