On Friday 18th November, the Milford on Sea Methodist Church hosted a lunch to raise funds for the Milford on Sea Community Responders. There were over 40 people who attended and enjoyed a two course lunch prepared by Margaret Boyce and her team, who run the twice monthly Lunch Club at the church.
Two of the volunteer Community Responders , Conrad Curtis and Terri Newton came along and explained a little about their role and displayed the equipment that they need to carry out their duties. Their current equipment is on loan from Ringwood and the plan is for each of the Community Responders based in Milford to have their own equipment so that it does not have to be passed around depending upon who is on call.
The event proved to be enjoyable, informative and successful as the amount raised was £413.35 and the Milford on Sea Methodist Church agreed to match he amount raised increasing the amount being paid to £826.70 which will pay for about two thirds of the cost of the equipment required for one Community Responder.
Thanks for the generosity of all of those who attended and a big thank you to those who organised the event.
