Volunteers from Collection Centres in Holland met to discuss new ideas, plans for the future fundraiser, and compared experiences of holding our vibrant fundraiser in the Netherlands.
We team up with volunteer firefighters
We have embarked on a partnership with volunteer firefighters at the end of 2017. Local volunteer firefighting departments became involved in the CPR for Schools educational initiative. What does it mean? It means that firefighters will pass their first aid and CPR knowledge to the pupils of local schools by leading extra CPR for Schools classes in the area.
610 units of volunteer fire departments have joined the educational initiative, and it means that firefighters, who already know how to administer first aid, require additional training on how to rely this knowledge to primary school children. The courses are taught by our dedicated CPR for Schools instructors. The training is, of course, free and all volunteer departments are free to join the initiative at any time.
The team representing our charity will come face to face with players from TVN TV station. The charitable game took place for the second time, and we played to raise money to buy a state-of-the-art ambulance for a neonatal ward of a teaching hospital in Poznań.
Join us in this year's record attempt. We will be celebrating "Restart a Heart' Day on October the 16th and showing how easy it is to learn the basics of CPR. Everyone is welcome to participate or hold their own event locally!
