Saving lives thanks to partnership scheme

MORE than 60 people will be given the skills to help save lives thanks to a new partnership scheme.

The project run by Neighbourhood Watch (MHNW), St John Ambulance and the Malvern Hills Community Safety Partnership – who provided £600 of funding – includes four first aid sessions run in Abberley and Hallow to teach residents how to deal with a range of medical emergencies.

Over 20 people attended the first session at Abberley Village Hall with further sessions on January 28 and February 3 in Abberley and February 4 in Hallow.

John Lakeman, chairman of the Teme Valley area of the MHNW, said: “I think the rural nature of our area makes people very aware that first aid is a vital thing to know in case of an emergency.

“I am very pleased that so many people have signed up. In fact, we have as many people again on the waiting list for training.”
