Community first responder teaches life-saving skills to support Myton Hospice

Leamington Editorial 29th Dec, 2019   0

A COMMUNITY first responder is teaching life-saving skills while supporting Myton Hospice.

Search and rescuer Nigel Whatmore has spent more than five years providing first aid training to Myton Hospice staff.

But wanting to do even more, he is offering potentially life-saving courses in exchange for a donation to the charity.

The first aid courses will be held at Warwick Myton Hospice and can have up to 12 people in each session.

And Nigel hopes while giving the skills to save a life, it can support the charity.

He said: “I love the environment at Myton and always consider myself privileged to work with and help train such lovely people. I think if you have ever had a loved one suffer with cancer you just understand how important a hospice can be.

“Unfortunately we hear far too often of hospices closing down due to lack of funds and support.

“It seemed a natural process to offer my company’s services to work in partnership with Myton’s training department with a view to provide external, low cost, quality first aid training to the public and local businesses.

“First aid training to save lives, which in turn then supports lives at Myton, it just sort of works.”
