Thank you to the ADAM Foundation for donating a ‘ KnifeSavers bleed kit’ to our College. The foundation was set up in memory of Adam Ellison who was a local victim of knife crime, Adam sadly lost his life in 2017 and the foundation has been set up by his family to help people in the local community.
The bleed kits have been provided to many local establishments, along with free training on how to use the kits by KnifeSavers, a non-profit programme that helps people deal with bleeding caused by knife injuries. Our Estates Manager, Pamela Di Scala and Sport & Physical Activity Coordinator, Dominic O’Neill, attended the training at Prescot Cables Football Ground. The training featured on BBC North West this week.
Dom says, “I was really grateful to be able to attend the KnifeSavers training following the donation of the bleed kit from the ‘Adam Foundation’. Although we hope that we will never have to be involved in such an incident, it is good in establishments education or otherwise to be prepared for situations knowing that this type of training could potentially save someone’s life.”
