The Isle of Wight NHS Ambulance Service would like to sincerely thank Mari Griffiths of The Salix Café, Small Hope Beach, for her 100-4-1 life campaign success.
The 100-4-1-Life campaign initiative was founded by Gordon Wight of Brading Haven Yacht Club (BHYC) who organised the first event, where the Ambulance Training and Community Response Services (ATCoRS) successfully trained 110 people in his local community.
Mari of the Salix Café, Shanklin, is now the second event organiser to successfully arrange the defibrillator training of 100 people and the fact that she did this within two months is an absolute incredible achievement.
The Salix Café has a Public Access Defibrillator (PAD) available 24/7.
It is absolutely critical that the public know how to; recognise a cardiac arrest, call 999 for an Ambulance and commence CPR. The fact that Mari has orchestrated such a successful training event for us to come in and teach the public these live saving skills, demonstrates what an amazing credit she is to our local community and we cannot thank her enough for all her effort.
