Boehringer Ingelheim released a statement earlier this year stating that the Bracknell based pharmaceutical company is teaming up with St Johns Ambulance and Bracknell News to provide free first aid training in Berkshire schools.
Boehringer Ingelheim is sponsoring a part time St Johns Ambulance liaison officer to provide free first aid training in schools. Natasha Bright will be available to the schools at little or no cost to carry out training, before schools had to pay for training, so the initiative will save them hundreds of pounds or mean more taking advantage of first aid training.
Boehringer Ingelheim’s involvement in free first aid training started in 2009 when, in liaison with the Bracknell News and St John, it launched free Childlifesaver courses for readers to learn basic skills required to save a baby or toddler’s life.
Duncan Cantor, director of communications at Boehringer, said: “As a company, we are committed to family health. This year is the 50th anniversary of the opening our UK office and what better way to celebrate our half-century in Bracknell than by extending the work we have already done in the first aid arena to local children. By helping them to learn the basic first aid skills they may, one day, be in a position to save someone’s life and that, for me, is a pretty good legacy for any company to have.”
