We have received this communication from the British Heart Foundation. The parkrunners will be ‘kick starting’ the training for Sandall Park in the coming weeks, and if your group wants to borrow the training kit, just let us know.
The defibrillator funded by Parkrunners is now fully installed and operational. We rarely get damage in the park – but sods law has dictated that last week we had some damage caused in the very gents toilet block next to where the defib is housed.
We have almost 3000 followers of Facebook – we ask that every time you walk, cycle, drive or even pass the park on a bus – just look across and check that the equipment is safe. That’s a lot of eyes looking after something that is a REAL lifesaver.
Our thanks go to Parkrun and all the parkrunners who have allowed this vital bit of kit to be available for all people who visit and use the park.
Hopefully it will never be used and will sit there gathering dust! BUT if it is needed just dial 999 and the ambulance service will give you code to release the equipment.
Meanwhile parkrun and FoSP are providing training in the use of CPR and the defibrillator.
Sandall Park is the only Doncaster park and green space to have this type of equipment available to the public 24/7. Let’s all look after it. Thankyou.
The Friends of Sandall Park now have possession of this training kit for training people in the use of CPR.
We will be working with local groups – particularly those who use the park for sporting purposes.
If you haven’t tried our tree trail yet – you should. It’s free and it’s a great way to have a look around the park.
You can have a look at the tree trail on-line by CLICKING HERE.
You can download the free App and track the tree’s around the park.
Out of the sad events at the parkrun recently there has at least been some good. Thanks to the kindness and support of fellow parkrunners enough has been raised to provide a defibrillator for the park. Not just for parkrunners but for all park users. Thankyou parkrunners.
