Team Knowhow's TV donation will help save LIVES
One of the area’s largest employers donated a television to a charity that provides first response medical care.
LIVES, a charity that provides medical care by trained volunteers who remain with the patient until an ambulance can arrive, obtained a mobile unit to deliver training to its volunteers.
Team Knowhow, who have distribution centres at Winthorpe, donated a television to help complete the set-up.
Nikki Silver, chief executive of LIVES, said: “Only one in ten people survive an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
“The addition of the mobile education unit means that LIVES can now train more people in CPR so that we can try to improve this statistic.”
LIVES community fundraising manager Charlie McClelland said: “The television generously donated by Team Knowhow will allow us to reach more people to assist in training CPR and show people why LIVES is so important across such a rural county.
“We could never justify spending charitable money on such an item so their donation makes a huge difference.”
