BURNLEY VOLUNTEERS CELEBRATED FOR WORK IN LOCAL COMMUNITY
Burnley Leisure star volunteers were honoured at a celebratory event last week.
The selfless work of Burnley Leisure volunteers has been recognised as part of a special dinner held at a local restaurant Shimla Spice.
A group of nine dedicated youngsters have received gifts and were presented with certificates for their contribution in reaching various milestones within local projects and events in the community.
Waheed Rashid, project development officer at Burnley Leisure and a lead for Volunteer Burnley scheme said: “These awards are just one of the ways that we can say a special thank you to our volunteers involved in giving up their time to help others.
“Without our volunteers, we wouldn’t be able to hold many of our projects and improve our services in the community, so we’re grateful to have their support.”
Pendle Leisure Trust has been educating parents at a Barrowford Nursery on the dangers of choking.
The Trust’s Training Manager, Karen Bracewell, went along to Barrowford Pre-School Nursery to present a three hour workshop on CPR and choking for adults, juniors and babies.
The nursery staff are already first aid qualified, but they wanted parents to also know the basics. The parents were charged one pound each and asked to like Pinpoint Training’s Facebook page.
The Trust’s Training Manager, Karen Bracewell, said: “The first aid skills that we teach do work and can be so effective in an emergency situation. As a company, we love teaching lifesaving skills because for us, what’s more rewarding than helping to save a life?
