1st Bramhall Scout Group recently took on a community project that is close to their hearts.
During Scout Community Week, they joined forces with the North West Ambulance Service and fundraised to buy two public access defibrillators for the local village.
As well as providing the equipment, 1st Bramhall’s leaders were trained up to deliver CPR and Defibrillator training to the public, with drop-in sessions running over a full weekend in October.
Scout Leader, Peter Boxall explained “ This was a great community project that all sections of the Group were involved in, from the initial fundraising through bagpacking, to some great poster designs, leaflet drops and helping with the training at the drop in sessions. As well as the young people in 1st Bramhall, we estimate around 600 people saw us deliver the training. On the Sunday we went roving round the village, even teaching at a bus stop and gate crashing a coffee morning.”
The public access defibrillators are located outside Bramhall Methodist Church and at The Village Club.
