Herefordshire Heartstart would like to thank Ross Bowling Club for the generous donation of £500 towards the Heartstart courses.

The donation was given following several Heartstart How to save a life courses delivered by Herefordshire Heartstart to members of the Ross Bowling Club. The donation came as a result of Herefordshire Heartstart helping them to source a defibrillator for the club.

Loraine Coleman from the charity said “We are grateful for this donation as, we rely on donations and small grants to keep this service running. Donations are essential to help cover the ongoing costs of running the courses, eg phone line/calls, replacing lungs, wipes, course paperwork, volunteer mileage, etc.”

If you can support the charity by organising a fundraising event or would like to offer business sponsorship to support the charity, please contact the Co-ordinator/Project Manager Loraine Coleman.

If you would like to attend a public course or are interested in booking a course for your group, please email or call Loraine Coleman on 01432 850067 or 0845 60 60 654 Mon to Thurs 9am to 3pm.

Or you can write to Herefordshire Heartstart, PO Box 305, HEREFORD HR1 9JD

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

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.

Notes to Editor:

Herefordshire Heartstart is affiliated to the British Heart Foundation, but we are not funded by them nor the Government for our service. We are a local initiative helping the people of Herefordshire. We rely on donations and grants to keep this vital service running.
