A 24/7 service group
Tel: 0845 601 3733
Tiptree has its own Community First Responder Group, run by East of England Ambulance and its aim is to support paramedics where an ambulance or paramedic’s car cannot reach a Category A call location within 8 minutes (Category A covers chest and breathing problems). Members of the Group are volunteers, who give as little or as much time as they can. Their response to a call could mean the difference between life and death for a local resident.
Potential First Responders will have an interest (without necessarily a qualification) in First Aid, and are given two days’ training by East of England Ambulance training staff in use of oxygen and a defibrillator, and in the techniques that are needed when being the first to arrive at a home in a case of breathing or heart problems. They need to live in or near to Tiptree, with the facility to get to callout locations within 8 or 9 minutes.
The Tiptree group operates a rota where each member has the kit bag and the dedicated mobile phone for either daytime or night time hours, after which they pass these on to the next person on the rota.
If you think you could take part and would like to know more, please ring Malcolm or look on the website link for more information.

The group is a Registered Charity which was started in 2003 to set up with the Heath Owner, Peter Wilkin, and Essex Wildlife Trust a heathland restoration project, planned to prevent Tiptree Heath from degenerating into a waste scrub and poor woodland area. The project is being funded by grants and donations from various agencies and charities.
Led by seven Trustees who are all Tiptree residents, and in joint operation with Essex Wildlife Trust, FoTH runs activities on the heath, including wildlife walks, health walks, children’s activities and conservation work parties throughout the year. There is an annual Heath Fair in June and summer holiday activities in conjunction with Tiptree Library.

Rotary members are enthusiastic, fun-loving and active volunteers who give their time and talents to serve communities both at home and overseas.
Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland (RIBI) has over 55,000 members in 1,840 clubs. It is an integral part of Rotary International.
Each member enjoys social networking opportunities and business links whilst giving something back to those less fortunate. We also have a lot of fun!
Kelvedon and District Rotary Club is a mixed club of around 40 members. We always welcome visiting Rotarians, or people interested in joining.
If you would like to come along and meet us, please call our Attendance Officer or Club Secretary. You will be sure of a warm welcome!
The Rotary Club continues to go from strength to strength being involved in many activities in the past year, including youth projects and helping local old peoples groups.
The Kelvedon & District Club aims to help the community as well as fund raising. Rotary International is aiming to eradicate Polio world wide and there are just a few pockets of this horrible disease left to conquer. We particularly support our local schools including Thurstable and all the Primary Schools.

ecdp supports disabled people throughout the whole of Essex aged 16 upwards regardless of impairment. It is a Disabled Peoples User Led Organisation (DPULO), i.e. it is run by and for disabled people. Its mission is to empower disabled people to have independence, choice, flexibility and control. It seeks to realise these goals through:
1. Empowering disabled individuals to have independence, choice and control.
2. Providing services to help people manage day-to-day living, including support planning, payroll services and account management.
3. Delivering a range of programmes to empower disabled people such as peer-to-peer support, volunteering and mentoring.
4. Listening to our members and ensuring their voice and lived experience is heard.
ecdp, with the support of our volunteers, encourage disabled people to become less isolated and become more involved in their local communities.
Many disabled people, with volunteer support, have grown in confidence and made new friends.
Harry was socially isolated. With the support of a volunteer gradually his confidence returned and he accessed adult education, training courses and voluntary work which has led on to paid work.
Harry is now much happier and confident in all areas of his life.
We greatly appreciate all the time and skills our trained volunteers give to the scheme. We would not be able to operate without our team of dedicated and committed volunteers.

Want to put something back in to the community whilst helping a worthy cause?
If the answer is YES to the above then why not join one of our St Helena Hospice Fundraising Groups.
St Helena Hospice was established in 1985 to help people with an incurable illness to live well and die with dignity and choice. The Hospice provides specialist palliative care through a range of services from community nursing to bereavement support for families of lost loved ones as well as much more. To continue to offer this vital service to people in your community, we need to raise over £8million per year.
We are seeking people like you, fun-loving, inspirational, committed citizens to join our fundraising groups around the region. These hard working teams organise a range of events from pub quizzes to Open Gardens, all to raise funds for the Hospice.
We are currently trying to set up a Fundraising support group in Tiptree. If you are interested in this or other volunteering opportunities with St Helena Hospice please do not hesitate to contact Charlotte Steele, our Community fundraiser who will be able to provide you with more information.
