Corscombe-Halstock--Community-Responders

Raising money for local causes

A lot goes into organising the event but it’s for some very important local causes.  We want to raise the most ever this year but we cannot only do that with your support.

If someone needs urgent medical help and phones for an ambulance it’s the First Responders that will normally arrive first. Helping save lives and look after people until the ambulance can arrive.

Other local organisations that receive funds are the local playgroup is the only one for miles and the village hall.

Click here for more information on where money from past events has gone to but whatever happens come along and have a great day out while helping some great local causes.
