Melton Aurora Rotary Club FunDay – 1st May

Melton Aurora Rotary club Fun Day

1st May, 10am to 4pm

Scalford Village Hall

Melton Community First Responders will have a stall at this event, manned by members of the group.

There are a lot more community access defibrillators being installed in the area and you never know when you might be asked to fetch and use one. On the stand we will have a resuscitation doll and a training defibrillator. Come along and have a go; it will give you the confidence to use it, should the need arrive.

Our New Projects

Or new project is to replace all the dilapidated kit bags we use for carrying our essential equipment. The oxygen bottles are fairly heavy so the bags need to be robust and they must also be wipe-clean to comply with infection control procedures. The most suitable bag that we have been able to find costs around £200 each and we have 13 to replace.

We would also like to buy a hi-vis jacket, with pockets, and a sweatshirt  for each responder. Currently, in the group there are 17 fully Trained Responders with another 4 waiting to get onto a training course.
