We presented Local4U with a grant for £420 to purchase a bleed control kit box. Earlier in the year the store raised money for a public defibrillator and now have a bleed control kit which was gifted by Derbyshire Police, but they needed a box to store it in.
The kits are stocked with a range of items designed to help control a catastrophic bleed and are designed to be used by members of the public to provide help before the arrival of the emergency services.
There are only two bleed control kits in Darley Dale with one being at Local4U on Crowstones Road and the other at Barringtons on Station Road.
Some great community fundraising by the Local4U, thanks so much for supporting our local community!
