I can confidently say that we are well placed to help with first aid needs in our workplace should we ever come across the need to.

Julia Zuza from Response for Life gave members of Sutherland Croquet Club a demonstration of resuscitation and how to use the AED. Julia is a fabulous instructor. She is enthusiastic, outgoing and demonstrates clearly with detailed instructions. Julia makes it seems intuitive and not too frightening to do. I think everyone there came away hoping that they never will have to use their new knowledge but confident that they could. Many thanks to Zuza. Penny Howarth
