Let’s Fund It approached CCRT by email to offer help through a donation. Let’s Fund It was then contacted by Caitriona Mc Mahon Co-Founding Director & Treasurer for CCRT Ireland.
Caitriona then gave a great insight into the important work that they do and went on to mention some of the most important equipment they would need was responder bags to both carry equipment and first aid supplies after some discussion LFI then offered to source both the requested bags as well as to fill them with the all important first aid equipment.
Having gotten a list of what CCRT required, LFI then contacted Hayes First Aid in Newcastle west who generously offered let’s fund it a discount allowing us to source two responder bags instead of the requested one bag.
Each responder bag is stocked with,
40 Adhesive Plasters
6 Triangular Bandages
