Mayor of Mold, Anthony Parry, has chosen Welsh Hearts http://welshhearts.org/ as his main charity initiative for his year in office. Welsh Hearts working alongside the Town Council, St John Ambulance http://www.sja.org.uk/sja/default.aspx and the community of Mold will endeavour to ‘Save a Life’ in the town, by raising sufficient funds to place at least 25 defibrillators at key locations in the town and raise the awareness of as many community volunteers as possible to use the equipment, together with CPR and other key life saving techniques. Welsh Hearts have very kindly donated to Mold Town Council their first defibrillator for the campaign.
To coincide with St John Ambulance Save a life September, each Tuesday in September Mold Town Council will be running ‘Save a Life’ awareness sessions at Mold Town Hall.
The evening sessions will be held from 6pm to 9pm on Tuesday 6, 13, 20 and 27 September
There is one day time session, 1pm to 4pm on Tuesday 27 September
The sessions are free to attend and will cover use of the equipment, CPR, choking, strokes, major bleeding and dealing with shock – the five most common killers.
Businesses, organisations and individuals who live, work or visit Mold and would like to become involved in the Save a Life campaign or to book a place on a ‘Save a Life’ awareness session, please contact Jane Evans, Mold Town Council Support Officer on 01352 758532 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
Places on each session are limited, so please book as soon as possible. If you are not able to attend these sessions, there will be more sessions announced throughout the Mayor’s term.
