Rotarians are often accused of not joining together to make a bigger impact. This is clearly not the case with the Medway clubs. Five Presidents from, Rochester, Strood, Medway, Medway Sunlight, and Chatham clubs all stepped up to the mark with Medway Mayor councillor Josie Iles and her consort, Steve, to present a worthwhile cheque of £1,675 to the local group of ‘First Responders’. These are volunteers, both men and women, aged over 18, who respond to 999 calls as community volunteers. They must be prepared to ‘drop everything’ should the call arise.

The funding is part of a Medway-wide project to fund three new units of the responders to fill gaps in the emergency cover in Medway over the next three years. You have to be fit, and over 18, and to be reliable and trustworthy, good under pressure, able to remain calm in emergencies, and to be caring when dealing with patients.Think that sounds like you? You can apply to: recruitment@secamb.nhs.uk – Go for it!
