AWE donate funds for life saving first aid equipment

Tadley First Responders, have purchased a community access defibrillator for Tadley and the surrounding areas with a donation made by AWE.  The defibrillator will be permanently located at the Tadley Rugby Club and will be a vital piece of life saving equipment for the local residents, members and players who regularly use the club facilities.

Tadley First responders are part of the South Central Ambulance Service Community Responder scheme and are made up of groups of over a hundred volunteers, who are  professionally trained to attend emergency calls received by the South Central Ambulance Communications Centre to provide emergency life support until an ambulance arrives.  NHS Research has shown that training in basic life support and use of community based defibrillators, can improve a person’s pre-hospital survival rate by between 25% - 30%.

 Debbie Leadbetter, AWE employee and volunteer Co-ordinator for Tadley First Responders said:

“We are overwhelmed by the amount AWE have donated in the last year and the continued support the company gives us. We have purchased more equipment including an additional de-fibrilator which will be located at the Aldermaston Recreational Society, which will be of huge benefit not only to AWE staff but also our local community. The group hopes to purchase three more defibrillators over the next year for Tadley and surrounding area With the AWE donation".

 Linsey White, Corporate Communications Manager, AWE comments:

"Tadley First Responders is an important scheme for the local area and the volunteers involved perform life-saving exercises which can help to save a person’s life. AWE is committed to helping local charities through donations and sponsorship as well as offering practical help where possible.”
