Another Busy Week!

24th June 2018

This past week our volunteers have:

Helped with the Royal Highland Education Trust's (RHET) family 5k fun run at Briarlands Farm and BlairDrummond Safari Park whereby over £1,300 was raised for RHET locally!

Stuart, our chairman, was the VIP guest who presented Heartstart Certificates to S2/3 students at St Mungo's Academy in Glasgow on the occasion of their PE Awards. We work with the staff at several schools including St Mungo's, Balfron High School and Park Mains High School ain Erskine to teach CPR and other lifesaving skills. Well done all pupils!

Team members Nikola from Strathblane and Linzi from Strathyre attended a ScotGov Water Safety Ministerial Roundtable event at Balloch alongwith other Water Safety Scotland Partners.

Four public access defibrillators have been used this week - from Killearn, Croftamie, Doune and Blairdrummond. One person recovering in hospital, sadly one fatality, we don't yet have information on one case and in another the defib was not used.

A number of our volunteers responded to recover the defibs, clean them, fit new pads and packs containing scissors etc and put them back in their cabinets. Sion from Croftamie, Nick from Killearn, Nikola, Janice and Heather from Strathblane took part in this work. Thanks to the members of the public who phoned us to alert us to the defibs being used and Balfron Police for recovering two of the defibs.

Replacing these pads and packs is costly - roughly £350 spent replacing five sets of pads and three resusc kits. Thankfully, the grant we received from Stirling Council - Your Fund Your Priorities is covering these replacements - for now...
