Lifesaving charity, the Mundesley First Responders, has acquired a donation from a group of slimmers.

The village’s Slimming World group, which launched in May final yr, gathered the cash for the first-aiders.

Weight-loss group chief Tracy Macheta, who herself misplaced 6.5 stone by Slimming World, mentioned: “We appreciated the thought of serving to a small charity that doesn’t obtain any public funding.

“We didn’t realise that as volunteers, the first responders pay for their own life-saving equipment including defibrillators which cost £1,800 each.”

First responder Leigh Caudwell mentioned: “We are very grateful. Responders can be with a patient within minutes to administer vital life-saving assistance when our ambulance colleagues can be many miles away. As a small organisation, donations like this help us to continue our emergency work and provide equipment for the local community.”
