News posted: 16-Jul-2018

Pittenweem Bowling and Tennis clubs were delighted to have a lifesaving Public Access Defibrillator installed at their club last week. The funds for the equipment were donated by local businessman Jamie Morris. He said yesterday “I am delighted to have been able to donate this vital lifesaving equipment although I hope it is never needed!” Gillian Duncan from East Neuk First Responders who have organised the installation said “every second counts when someone suffers a cardiac arrest, the quicker a shock from a defibrillator can be delivered the better the chance of survival. This defibrillator is now available 24/7 to those using the Bowling Green and Tennis Courts but also anyone in the surrounding area.

ENFR chosen charity for the East Neuk Dook

Brave locals dive into Anstruther Harbour to raise money for East Neuk First Responders

News posted: 10-Feb-2018

Each year locals dive into Anstruther Harbour to raise money for charity, in an event called the East Neuk Dook. This year, East Neuk First Responders were the chosen charity.

Originally supposed to happen on Hogmanay, bad weather caused the event to be postponed. When the day came, locals turned out to show tremendous support to all those jumping. This group of brave souls raised over £5500 for the charity.

We are extremely grateful to all the "dookers" who took part this year, and for the community as a whole for supporting us and helping raise funds for ENFR.
