Herefordshire Heartstart would like to thank Mr Jon Stockwell T/A Euro Car Services, Coningsby Street, HEREFORD, for his generous donation of £275 towards Herefordshire Heartstart, which has helped towards part funding of an essential new laptop to replace the old office laptop, which was malfunctioning.


This is a vital piece of equipment for dealing with all course bookings and enquiries, generating course paperwork and presentation materials etc. The laptop is essential as it also helps to get the message out about our free courses through social media, via emails and letters.


Last year we trained over 1,000 people in Herefordshire, and as we rely on donations and small grants to keep this service running, every penny counts to keep the service running. Euro Car Services were extremely generous and this kind donation diverted the money where it was immediately needed and also means that more people can continue to receive training.


Loraine Coleman, Co-ordinator/Project Manager thanked Mr Stockwell of Euro Car Services who was kind enough to make the donation.


His donation pledge was made towards the fundraising that was undertaken by one of our volunteers Nicola Stock, when she undertook a gruelling 350km cycle challenge across Tanzania recently. He kindly agreed that the donation of £275 could be used for the laptop, which benefits the charity immensely.


Herefordshire Heartstart are extremely grateful for his support.

If you would like to attend a public course or are interested in a course for your group, or could help by organising a fundraising event or would like to offer business sponsorship to support the charity, please email or call Loraine Coleman on 0845 60 60 654 Mon to Thurs 9am to 3pm.

Anyone can attend a free two hour Heartstart course, or can book a course for their group.

At a two hour course you will learn rescue breaths and chest compressions (CPR), as well as dealing with an unconscious casualty, choking, serious bleeding and heart attack. These are simple skills that can and do save lives.
