Each year, at the very stroke of midnight on the day of the Grand Finale we announce the preliminary result of our fundraiser. The result is an estimate based on reports we receive from local Collection Centres, preliminary results from online auctions and internet fundraisers.
First aid training in Kalisz
CPR for Schools educational programme is based on a very simple, yet very effective premise: primary school teachers become first aid instructors for their pupils. This way first aid knowledge is becoming universally available to primary school children and up to date, nearly 3 million children have learned CPR and the basics of first aid. This time our instructors are demonstrating the elements of the CPR for Schools programme to the primary school teachers from Kalisz.
The two-day CPR and first aid course is free and all teaching aids and materials such as handbooks and exercise books, manikins and DVDs are free. What is more, teachers who are actively participating in the CPR for Schools educational initiative can request new materials for their students.
We have just three sleeps to go until the 29th edition of the Grand Finale. This year, even despite the pandemic, we are - yet again - taking out initiative global. Let us take you on a virtual tour of all locations where volunteers are going to play with the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity.
We would like to celebrate World Kidney Day and remind you about all the work we had done to help children struggling with nephrology conditions. Overall, we have bought 1 034 pieces of equipment.
