Can you help us to raise money so that our volunteers can continue to provide their important work in our community? When we receive donations and grant funding it helps us to pay for the vital work we do. It helps us build community resilience which makes Scotland a safer place to live, work and play.
Every penny really does count.
FOIL EMERGENCY BLANKETS We need to raise £10,000
Foil emergency blankets are ideal for treating or preventing hypothermia and are essential for our work. Both sides have a heat-reflective metallic surface that will retain over 90% of body heat.
CELLULAR BLANKET We need to raise £10,000
We use these generous size blankets for pillows, or to help elevate limbs, or to help keep our patients warm. They have a solid hemmed edge at each end to help prevent fraying, are lightweight, and trap air in to help keep a patient warm.
FIRST AID TRAINING We would like to train 2000 people in the community £40,000
Our aim is to provide a series of community based First Aid courses which are free to the public. These courses will teach basic lifesaving skills whilst encouraging volunteering with St Andrew's First Aid.
KIT BAG We need 500 in total £25,000
Every volunteer needs a kit bag, which is packed with First Aid materials. These bags need refilled on an annual basis so it is essential that we continue to fundraise to supply these bags.
BRANDED UNIFORM We need 500 in total £100,000
Our volunteers wear their uniforms with pride. Whilst out in the community or attending events these uniforms make us easily identifiable and endorse our professional reputation as leading providers of First Aid in Scotland.
AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATOR We need 10 in total £14,450
For a sudden cardiac arrest the chances of survival decrease by 7-10% for every minute that the casualty goes without defibrillation. Can you save him? Without an AED the likely answer is 'no'. This year we are fundraising to equip our volunteers with training AEDs.
TROLLEY BED We need 6 in total £27,000
Trolley beds are extremely manoeuvrable and lightweight, but also very robust and durable and are a vital piece of equipment for our volunteers. Trolley bedssupport the transfer and recovery of patients, whilst helping to significantly reduce moving and handling risks.
MOBILE FIRST AID VEHICLE We need two in total £60,000
All our vehicles have First Aid and medical equipment and are staffed by our volunteers. The vehicles are deployed during festive periods and at events and this year we would like to purchase two additional vehicles to be used in the community.
