Red Cross receives generator
Members of Caversham Lodge, No. 3831, in Oxfordshire, have purchased a generator to enable the British Red Cross to run heat and lighting for an outdoor treatment post, which would be set up alongside a vehicle.
This donation is in addition to the funds for a new Red Cross First Aid Unit for Reading, which launched last summer. The new generator means the First Aid Unit will be fully functional even in the middle of a field.
Pamela Baggaley of the British Red Cross, Berkshire, said, ‘We are delighted that the lodge has donated the generator. It will enable us to provide the best first aid treatment to people wherever there is need.’
