A donation has been made by Cannon Events to CSALS to help boost the charity’s fundraising efforts.

John Cannon, owner of Cannon Events, said: “I think it is very important that more people learn first aid and I wanted to do my bit to help.

“I would urge anyone to learn vital first aid skills as you never know when you might need them to save a life.”

Debra Johnson, CSALS’ community facilitator, thanked John and Cannon Events for the donation, saying: “John’s help is very much appreciated as we rely on donations and offers of support from the local business community.”

A free online first aid is offered by CSALS, in association with Virtual College.
