As a ‘self-funding group’ we have to source funding for the purchase of a number of essential items including uniform, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), kit bags, Defibrillators, etc.  For example, the type of costs we need to cover include £25 for a uniform polo shirt, £165 for a kit bag through to over £1000 for a defibrillator and £2000 for a Camel Lifting Device.

equipment costs

As a team of CFR volunteers, we are always exploring ways of funding the equipment we need to operate, plus allowing us to expand and supply equipment to the team within the Porthcawl area as more volunteers CFR’s come forward and are trained.

As well as looking for donations locally we also get involved in a number of fund raising activities. With the help from many organisations and individuals we are involved in a number of fundraising activities including:-
  • Pub Quiz - Seagull Inn, Nottage, Porthcawl (Each Friday at 9pm from 8th June through to the 29th June incl)
  • Porthcawl RescueFest, RNLI Station, Porthcawl (Sunday 22nd July 2018)
