Our paediatric First Aid Evening, organised by Storkies , took place November 25 at St Johns. Funding for the evening came from the community collection and from Storkies itself. The event was a great success. Parents, grandparents and carers from across the Benefice communities took part in active workshops to teach them vital lifesaving techniques in resuscitation and essential emergency First Aid.
Although it is a serious and sensitive topic, a relaxed and supportive atmosphere was enjoyed by everyone as they practised key skills on the mannequins.Trainer and Director of ABC RESUS, Gaby Bignall and her team of nurses, were skilled and helpful in answering a range of important questions asked by those attending. We all went away feeling more equipped to face an unwanted emergency than before we came.This was a very worthwhile community initiative and we will hopefully run it again next year. Thanks to all who came along to support the evening and helped with the organisation.
