Events to support Fund’s work

Bamburgh Pavilion
Bamburgh Pavilion

A north Northumberland village is holding an event next week to support the defibrillator installed there by the 2014 Jam Jar Army beneficiary.

Bamburgh Pavilion is hosting what is hoped to be a memorable evening with Graham Bell on Images of the Arctic on Friday, August 1, to raise funds for the public-access defibrillator that The Stephen Carey Fund has provided outside of the Pavilion.

There will be tea, coffee, wine and a raffle and the event is open to all at £3 a ticket, children are free. Tickets can be bought at the door on the evening or from Wyndenwell shop in Bamburgh before the event.

Graham Bell is an ornithologist living in Wooler who pursued a career in teaching. His chief interest has always been natural history, with birds being paramount.

He regularly lectures and writes on bird topics and is the author and photographic illustrator of several books.

He is a member of the RSPB Council and its conservation and education committees.

The Stephen Carey Fund aims to improve the awareness of emergency first-aid skills in addition to improving the provision of life-saving equipment throughout Northumberland.

They have already provided one training session for Bamburgh village in the use of the defibrillator and intend to hold a further training session.
