Our local ASDA store, based in the Lion Retail Park in Woking, kindly donated £100 to the team for winning its Community Token Scheme event.
First Responder Sue Shaw says:
“We would like to pass on our thanks to Rob Jackman and his colleagues at ASDA and of course to all the customers who selected our team with their green tokens”
The Woking team presented free AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) to Heathside and Rydens Enterprise Schools. Staff members attended a training session to ensure that they were familiar with the new equipment and proficient in its use alongside good quality CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation).
Both defibrillators were fully funded by local company Procter & Gamble (based in Weybridge) who have a strong track record of supporting local community projects.
The Woking team presented a free AED (Automated External Defibrillator) to Fullbrook school in New Haw. Full training was again provided enabling staff to physically use the equipment in order to underline its simplicity of use.
Fullbrook spokesperson Susan Mannveille says:
”We are delighted with the donation of a defibrillator and after the training session everyone feels confident about using the equipment if necessary”
With the addition of Fullbrook school, the level of defibrillator cover in the local area has risen to over 6,000 children and staff.
First Responder Glyn Willoughby says:
“We continue to be extremely impressed with the dedication of Surrey school staff. The high level of motivation and existing first aid ability is very encouraging”
