Women can learn vital life-saving skills at The Pod in Charford

WOMEN can learn vital lifesaving skills at the latest ‘A Cuppa with Deidre’ in Charford next Friday, December 19.

The coffee mornings, from 10.30am to midday at The Pod in Humphrey Avenue (formerly the Starlight Cafe), are aimed at supporting women, helping them build their confidence and learn new skills.

Women can chat and make new friends and ‘Deidre’ is the ‘new friend they have not met yet’.

Andy Jeynes, a community response manager from West Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust, will deliver a CPR and defibrillator awareness presentation.

Elaine, who organises the events with Sam Rawlings, said: “This comes at Christmas time to support loved ones and friends, because knowing CPR is a skill which can save a life – the best gift you can give someone who needs it.”

Children are welcome and the events are supported by independent Usborne organiser Sarah’s Super Books.

The group is also looking for sponsorship and donations to help cover the cost of activities.

Anyone who can help should email Elaine at edarkin68@gmail.com.

Call Darran Moore on 07715 069303 or email him at darran.moore@bdht.co.uk for more on The Pod and the workshops there.
