Knutsford Heartstart Trainer Wins National Lifesaver Award

Robbie Wolfson Aug 15



Robbie Wolfson, one of our Heartstart facilitators, has been given a prestigious national Lifesavers award
Robbie is one of only 6 throughout the UK who has been awarded the SAD UK (Sudden Adult Death Trust) National Lifesaver Defibrillator Award for 2015

Ann Jolly (the Founder & President of SAD UK) writes: “Dear Robbie…..I am pleased to let you know that you were nominated for the SADS UK National Defibrillator Award. It was felt that the lifesaving action you took was quite outstanding and I am delighted to let you know that you have been awarded this honour.”

The presentation to Robbie and the 5 other will be taking place at the Royal College of Nursing, Cavendish Square, London on the 17th October 2015.

Robbie’s reaction to the award: “Whilst I recognise that I am to receive this Award I do want it to be recognised that the result was due to the Heartstart training I receive annually at Knutsford Community Heartstart. My message is to tell all the participants at our Heartstart Courses that they will never know when their help could be needed, but the knowledge you receive on the course, plus the confidence to act on it is always there to help save someone’s life. Nothing can be more worthwhile than that.”

Adrian Rees, Chairman of KCFRT and Knutsford Heartstart Organiser, said: “Clearly, Knutsford Community First Responder Trust is so proud for Robbie himself, but also for the national recognition of the critical importance of receiveing training in life saving skills we provide at Knutsors Community Heartstart”
