A Huge Thank You

Staff at East Ayrshire Leisure and Doon Valley Leisure Centre would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who voted for us at the recent Developing Dalmellington Parish voting day.  It was an extremely well organised event with a great turnout and we felt privileged to be part of it. We plan on using the funds to purchase additional CPR Manikins and training defibrillators to allow us to deliver a number of ‘Save a Life’ events over the summer holidays for adults and children. These sessions will focus on what to do in an emergency situation if you come across a baby, child or adult who is choking, having a heart attack or has stopped breathing. 

Doon Valley Leisure Centre has an Automated External Defibrillator on the premises for public use, so we will also be showing individuals how to use it giving them confidence to use this lifesaving equipment in an emergency situation.

Statistics show that, in the UK, 77% of people either don’t know or are unsure of how to perform CPR and millions of people wouldn’t know how to give basic first aid to another adult so taking part in these events really could help save a life. 

Follow our Facebook pages (Doon Valley Leisure Centre or East Ayrshire Leisure), visit our website - www.eastayrshireleisure.com or check with staff in the venue for event dates that will be running throughout July and August. 

If you would like to find out more about the sessions that we will be delivering and what’s involved you can find out more at www.rlss.org.uk/save-a-life-series.
