At our meeting on 25 July, Lions President Derek Prior presented Ian Davey with a cheque for £1000 for the charity Essex Community First Aid Volunteers towards the cost of an ECG machine for one of their ambulances.
The Charity provides First Aid Cover to Public Events which include Little Havens Hospices, some Lions Clubs, Rotary Clubs, Schools and Council Events – nearly 200 events this year.
The Charity has some 40 members who give their time free and some of the volunteers are practicing nurses.
The ECG machine monitors heart arrhythmias and can detect problems prior to arrival at hospital to help gain an early diagnosis and indication of the seriousness of a patient’s condition.
Billericay Lions are pleased to help fund the purchase of an ECG Machine as part of our community work in Billericay/Essex.
