East Mains Community Council Supports Local Scout Group with CPR Training Grant!

We’re delighted to share some fantastic news for the 6th East Kilbride Scout Group! East Mains Community Council has awarded the group a generous grant of £500 from their micro-grants program. This vital funding will allow the Group to purchase manikins for CPR training, a crucial skill that could one day save a life.

Equipping Scouts with Lifesaving Skills

The 6th East Kilbride Scout Group is a pillar of our community, providing young people with a space to learn, grow, and develop valuable skills. One of the group’s core objectives is to equip our members with the knowledge and confidence to handle emergency situations. With this grant, they’ll be able to introduce and practice CPR techniques, empowering them to potentially intervene in a life-or-death situation.

The Importance of CPR Training

CPR, or Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, is a lifesaving technique that can significantly increase the chances of survival following a cardiac arrest. By performing chest compressions and rescue breaths, CPR helps maintain blood flow to vital organs until medical help arrives.

Equipping young people with CPR skills not only empowers them to help others in their own social circles but also fosters a sense of responsibility and community awareness. These skills can be invaluable throughout their lives.

East Mains Community Council: Investing in the Future

East Mains Community Council deserves a round of applause for recognising the importance of CPR training for our young people. Their commitment to supporting local initiatives, like the 6th East Kilbride Scout Group, makes a real difference in our community.

This grant is a fantastic example of how community organisations can work together to empower young people and equip them with the skills they need to be responsible and caring citizens.

Thank you to East Mains Community Council for their generous support!
