12:00pm Friday 4th October 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
FIRST responders play a vital role in our community.They can often be the first on the scene if there is an emergency, ready to provide aid to critically ill members of the public.
Each member is a volunteer who gives up their own free time to help save lives.
The Harwich and District first responders are attempting to win the Lloyds Bank community fund prize of up to £3,000.
Diane Masterton, co-ordinator, said: "This money would not only go towards new equipment and uniform but also help us continue some great work in the community providing Heartstart courses so that more people know how to save lives.”
People can vote for Harwich First Responders to win by texting Vote MDJD to 6119 or visiting llyodsbank.com/communityfund.
