Bristol Half Marathon For The British Red Cross

My name is Kate Robinson and I am the Community Fundraiser for the British Red Cross in Wiltshire, Avon & Gloucestershire.

I am currently recruiting participants to run for the Red Cross in the Bristol Half Marathon. I wondered if you would be able to help us in any way, I have attached a poster and below is the link to our online booking form with information about being part of the Red Cross team:

We offer many valuable services to the local area like Community Based First Aid. This service identifies vulnerable groups in the community and works in partnership with them to ascertain their needs and vulnerabilities to devise a training programme and develop a responsive and sustainable First Aid Initiative.

Through this programme we promote resilience and sustainability by training community members to become trainers themselves empowering these groups with relevant first aid skills, eventually becoming self-sufficient and giving them the potential to role out the programme to groups in other communities.

The groups we are currently supporting include youth and schools – ‘Help a Mate Roadside Training’, drug and alcohol users, people with learning disabilities, refugees and hospital outpatients; specifically coronary and artery patients.

Any publicity or endorsement you can offer us would be very gratefully received, please don’t hesitate to contact me if there is any more information you require.

Many Thanks
