Stuart Collision is the chief executive of St Andrew’s First Aid.

He said: “The addition of these two fully kitted vehicles to our fleet, will enhance the first aid services we provide to communities across Scotland.

“The funding from the Morrisons Foundation has been vital in enabling us to meet the growing demands for highly skilled first aid support and to ensuring that we can continue to deliver the very best service possible.”

The Morrisons Foundation is a charity set up by the supermarket.

'DELIGHTED'

A cheque was presented on behalf of the foundation by Catherine McRoberts, from the Morrisons store in Anniesland, Glasgow.

She said: “We were delighted to present this cheque to a charity which provides life-saving support across Scotland.

“The Morrisons Foundation supports charities which help to make a positive difference to local communities.

"I would recommend visiting our website to find out how to apply.”

CARDIAC

The vehicles will be in service from November.

They will allow first aid volunteers attending events to deal with anything from minor injuries to cardiac arrest.

Emergency equipment onboard includes a life saving defibrillator, an orthopaedic stretcher and a carry chair.

The charity aims to deliver first aid training through schools, demonstrations, courses and engagement, ensuring that Scotland becomes a nation of lifesavers.

The vehicles were fitted out and branded by Arnold Clark.
