A £65,000 investment from them and the Rotary International Foundation means members cab now work to provide emergency first response equipment to more local areas.
Rotarians are now working with the North West Ambulance Service, a number of Search & Rescue organisations and the National Forum for Health & Wellbeing to implement the various individual projects.
