Coventry Community Responders will be joining the Sky Blues at the game against Bristol Rovers on Sunday for a bucket collection to help fund their work.
The charity, who were Coventry City’s charity partner during the 2014/15 season, will be collecting pre-match at the Ricoh Arena at turnstiles and in corporate lounges on Sunday afternoon.
Volunteers from the charity, which was established in 2009 by two serving police officers, attend 999 calls on behalf of the West Midlands Ambulance service, providing potentially lifesaving treatment until the nearest available ambulance arrives at the scene.
The charity have many active volunteers trained to a nationally recognised level by the West Midlands Ambulance Service who – coupled with their full-time jobs – between them aim to be on duty 24-hours a day, seven days a week. They are fully trained in handling a variety of different situations including heart attacks, strokes and cardiac arrest.
Following the successful partnership four years ago, Coventry Community Responders have continued working alongside the club to provide support to the Sky Blues’ medical and physio team on a matchday, and have also held yearly bucket collections and other fundraising activities supported by the Club.
