A lifesaving community group will be able to expand its operation after winning a £3,000 fund.

Leighton Linslade First Responders topped a public poll across the region for the Lloyds Bank Champion Scheme, which ran from September 2 to October 10.

With the £3,000 winning fund the First Responders will now be able to fund the purchase of two lifesaving kits, allowing the group to cover more hours across the town during the week.

Lloyds Bank director Graham Lindsay said: “It has been fantastic to see so many members of the public nominating and voting for good causes in the 2014 Lloyds Bank Community Fund.

“Looking at all the wonderful causes that the Community Fund awards will go towards is truly heartening to see.”
