Thursday 25th April 2013 – 4.30pm – John Hawker.
A charity car wash is taking place at Leamington Rugby Club this Saturday to raise money for new kit for the local Warwick District Community First Responders.
The event will take place between 12pm and 5pm with 10 volunteers ready willing and able to give your vehicle a good scrub.
All funds will go towards new uniforms and equipment for the group so pop along and make a donation to a great cause and get a clean car thrown in as well.
CFRs are everyday members of the public who are trained in lifesaving techniques including the use of a defibrillator, a device used to restart the heart of someone who has suffered a cardiac arrest. Their availability, close proximity and local knowledge of the area are among their many assets.
CFRs will be called by the ambulance service’s control room to medical emergencies in their area while an ambulance is en-route. They are vital in life-threatening situations, particularly in the case of a cardiac arrest, stroke and trauma when every minute counts.
