Char­ity marks fund-rais­ing week with vol­un­teer help

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEIGHBOURHOOD NEWS -

A FOL­LOW-UP ses­sion to a suc­cess­ful first aid course is be­ing held later this month.

The Bri­tish Red Cross held a pop­u­lar ev­ery­day first aid course in Mar­ket Deep­ing back in March.

The or­gan­is­ers are now putting on an­other course for all those who went to the first ses­sion to top up the skills and knowl­edge which they learned.

The ses­sion will be two hours long and held on Tues­day, May 22 at Deep­ing Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, in Dou­glas Road, Mar­ket Deep­ing from 2pm un­til 4pm.

As well as learn­ing ba­sic life­sav­ing skills there will also be the chance to use a de­fib­ril­la­tor - used to shock pa­tients who have had a heart at­tack.

The ses­sion is free but needs to be booked by call­ing Liz Water­land on 01778 343722.

And the char­ity is also cel­e­brat­ing its an­nual ap­peal week which started on Satur­day.

Liz said: “Vol­un­teers are needed to help with a street col­lec­tion on Wed­nes­day morn­ing or for house-to-house col­lect­ing at any time dur­ing this week.

“Lo­cal busi­ness could also help by hav­ing a counter-top col­lec­tion box.”

To help out con­tact Liz on 01778 343722.
