Portarlington Community Responder Group 

Thanks to all who came along to the AGM last night. A few new committee members now with jobs to do and one or two familiar faces now in different roles. We will be looking to recruit some new members and do some fundraising over the coming months so please keep an eye on this page for information.
Schemes like this cannot work without community support so if you know of anyone you think might be interested in getting involved, we would love to hear from them. No experience necessary, all training provided and if there is anyone who would like to help but feels they couldn’t be a responder, there’s always other jobs that need doing- any help would be greatly appreciated.
