SSG’s defibrillation initiative helps another organisation!

As an organisation we have always valued positive impacts for local communities. This is why this year we launched a new initiative to support local community groups by supplying them with defibrillation units.

As part of this, we have pledged that from every delegate booked onto a first aid course, £1 goes towards funding defibrillation units for community groups and organisations. This means that every time someone signs up for one of our first aid courses they are contributing to a life-saving cause in more ways than one.

Earlier this year we presented a defibrillation unit to Teign Valley ‘Men in Sheds’ project who were so grateful for the donation. Now, we have been able to collect enough funding to buy a second unit to support another local organisation. The latest beneficiary of our defibrillation initiative is the Yealm Gig Rowing Group.

Barry Wolstenholme, one of our Senior Health and Safety Trainers, presented the unit and said “It’s a great feeling to know that every time a delegate books a first aid course with us it’s going to help someone and an organisation. I’m thrilled that we get to help groups like the Yealm Gig Rowing Club and look forward to seeing who we can help next!”
