Ruth Watson, a paediatric first aid trainer, recently helped mums learn what to do in an emergency situation, such as a child not breathing, choking or suffering from an array of other serious injuries.
Profits were donated to the Children’s air Ambulance, a dedicated air transfer children for critically ill children and babies. The team fly some of the countries most poorly children between local hospitals and specialist medical centres.
Faye Wilson Fundraising Manager said:
We are delighted that Watson’s Training Service’s have chosen to support us as we both have the same aims at our core and that is to help save young lives.
The Children’s Air Ambulance receives no government funding and we rely entirely on the support of our local businesses and communities to keep our lifesaving service in the air.
Thank you to Ruth for supporting us.
Sally Haslewood of Harrogate Mumbler said:
A fantastic course today Ruth thank you. I’d thoroughly recommend it to all parents.
The children’s air ambulance costs £7.33 for every minute it is in the air.
The charity relies totally on private funding, they don’t receive any government grants or subsidies, so support from local businesses and the community is vital for the future of the service.
