YOU can help us to achieve our aims

We are a charity that relies upon the kindness and generosity of the local community and those who attend local events. We need an annual income in excess of £30,000 to enable us to recruit, insure, train and equip our volunteers so that they can provide our high quality service.

There are many ways that we receive this vital funding and YOU can help.

The vast majority of our income is in the form of donations from event organisers and the general public. We also generate some income from our workplace training. Below are numerous ways you can help us to raise funds.

Make use of our services

Workplace First Aid Training

We provide workplace training to meet the requirements of the Health & Safety First Aid Regulations 1981. We charge for this service but always aim to provide value for money training. All profits made from these courses are used to support our community services.

First Aid Event Cover

If you are planning an event that needs first aid cover, contact us and book our services though we do not charge we appreciate any donations you may wish to give.

Make a one off donation

You can donate by sending a cheque payable to 'Newark Community First Aid' to our postal address – 6 Mount Road, Balderton, NG24 3HF.

You can donate by placing your gift into one of our collecting boxes.

Your donation can help in many ways:

£10 - hires an oxygen cylinder for one month allowing us to care for a casualty with breathing problems.
£50 – pays for a set of defibrillator pads allowing us to treat a casualty whose heart has stopped.
£300 – buys an analgesic gas set allowing us to give pain relief to a person with fractured limbs.

Donate on-line

You can also donate on-line by going to

A gift in your Will, leaving a legacy

You may wish to consider providing a gift in your Will so that we can continue to provide our services in years to come. Speak to your own solicitor for their professional advice.

Regular Giving

This can be the most cost effective way to support our work. It allows us to know with some certainty that funds will be coming in at regular intervals thus allowing us to plan for the future. This is particularly important for a new charity like ourselves with the need to cover our set up costs, maintain our core services and steadily develop our services so that we can train more people and attend more events.

By making a regular monthly donation you will know you are giving us the tools to save lives. If you contact us we can send you a ‘Regular Giving Mandate’ so that you can organise your regular donation through your bank.

Fundraising 2019/2020

In 2019 you helped us raise £30,000, enabling us to purchase a brand new £60,000 Mobile First Aid Unit/Ambulance. We would like to thank everyone that made donations, organised fundraising events, sponsored events or purchased tickets for our Christmas Raffle. In 2020 we need to purchase a new adult resuscitation manikin and a new baby manikin to replace older models that can be no longer upgraded – this will cost over £2,000. We also have 2 defibrillators donated to us 6 years ago that again can no longer be upgraded and we need to purchase replacements which with additional items will cost £2,500. Any fundraising you can do to help would be gratefully appreciated.

Resuscitation Manikin and Skill Meter we hope to purchase in 2020
