The Storrington Area Response Team hope to buy a new defibrillator after receiving a donation from Horsham police.

PCSO Carol Boniface presented a cheque from the police property act fund for £500.

The response team is a group of volunteers who are trained to deliver life saving treatment and can be alerted to go to the scene when a 999 call is received by the ambulance service, along with an ambulance crew.

Nikki Turner, team leader said: “I’d like to thank Sussex Police for their contribution. We hope to put the money towards buying a new defibrillator.”

PCSO Boniface said: “The work of the Storrington responders is so valuable to the community of Storrington and Sullington. I am delighted that we have been able to support them to continue saving lives.”
