BIG: When a patient faces a serious emergency every second counts and a simple helping hand from a volunteer Community First Responder can often mean the difference between life & death. That’s why First Response teams throughout Wales are celebrating their share of nearly £240,000 awarded from the Big Lottery Fund to community groups recently.
