Registered Charity 1092333
Heifer News  June 2002
 
Charity Commission
At the beginning of June we heard the great news that we are now a registered charity (1092333).  Our thanks go to all those who have helped to make this possible.

Duty Statistics
We are now providing first aid and/or ambulance cover for further events.  Since November 2001 we have covered 39 events, treating a total of 55 casualties.

Community Work
We have trained further ranger, guide and brownie groups in first aid, including resuscitation skills.  In May we attended the Surrey Youth Inclusion Conference, where we demonstrated and taught resuscitation, and made up young people with simulated injuries.  This was a stimulating event and raised the profile of training young people and youth workers in first aid skills. 

Affiliations
HFR has now joined Hart Voluntary Action.  We have also had a number of enquiries through the website from similar groups looking to set up a charity or other organisation.  We are more than happy to give help and advice, so please email us.

Equipment
New purchases include: fracture splints, oxygen therapy equipment, first aid bags, Telford Extrication Device (TED), and a folding furley for use at first aid duties.

Donations
The new TED was purchased with donations from the Hants and Berks Rover Owners. 

Sponsorship
Wellington Signs, generously provided HFR signs for both vehicles. We very much appreciate this and would like to thank them for their generosity.

Members Training
Continual training of members in recent months has included updates in emergency childbirth, manual handling, child protection and infection control, as well as the usual resuscitation.   We are now investigating the possibility of registering with the HSE for training and assessing members in the First Aid at Work (FAW) qualification.  This is currently the only nationally recognised first aid qualification.

Training Courses
We will be running another Basic First Aid course on September 22nd 2002.
