EF Bulmer Benevolent Fund Grant to support Heartstart

Herefordshire Heartstart are delighted to announce the receipt of a grant from the EF Bulmer Benevolent Fund for £3,000 to help with some of the running costs of the charity for teaching Heartstart courses in the community.

Herefordshire Heartstart is a registered charity (no 1082309) established in 1996 and is affiliated to the British Heart Foundation to run free two hour How to save a life courses, both in the community, for members of the public, other voluntary organisations, groups and schools.  Heartstart is an initiative of the British Heart Foundation, but we are not funded by them, the local Council or Government to deliver our free training.

We rely on grants and donations to support this training, and welcome donations or fundraising from any group who is able to support us.

The Heartstart courses are available to anyone, to teach them the necessary skills to keep someone alive until the emergency services arrive.

This includes dealing with choking, serious bleeding, heart attack, unconsciousness and CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation).

We also train teaching staff from schools in Herefordshire to become Heartstart instructors to deliver these vital skills to their pupils.

Loraine Coleman Co-ordinator/Project Manager “I am extremely pleased that the EF Bulmer Benevolent Fund has agreed to support us again over the coming year. The grant will help us to carry on teaching these essential skills throughout Herefordshire.”

To book a course for your group or to book onto a public course, email info@herefordshireheartstart.org
