Alstock is run as a charitable event. Every year we donate money to local and national charities.

Since its’ inception the aim of FLEET has widened and the charity now provides equipment to all the services that give emergency medical support to the public. FLEET equipment is in constant use on
More recently FLEET, with the British Heart Foundation, has been instrumental in the creation and equipping of First Responders who are members of the public trained to provide critical life saving treatment including defibrillation in their local area.
