CFRs from New Milton, Ringwood, Totton and Wellow, organised a fundraising and recruitment event at the Tesco store in New Milton ten days before Christmas.
Even though it was a weekday event it was an outstanding success, breaking the one day record for a collection at the store by raising £1584 thanks to the remarkable generosity of the customers and staff.
It was inspiring as well to receive so many expressions of gratitude from the public. Unsurprisingly the work of the ambulance service and those who support it remains extremely highly valued and people are happy to show their appreciation.
Our thanks to Amanda Tesco Community Champion for letting us hold the event and for the Santa hats!
