Millie’s Trust receives £1,000 donation from Simplyhealth

Healthcare provider Simplyhealth has donated £1,000 to Millie’s Trust, a Manchester based charity dedicated to helping save lives by providing education and training in first aid. The funds will be used to promote first aid awareness and will offer 100 local people, including parents, training in paediatric first aid. 


We would like to say a huge thank you to Simplyhealth for this fantastic donation. This is a huge boost for our first aid awareness campaign and we are really touched that employees at Simplyhealth have nominated us to receive this funding. In a two hour course, you can learn the basics of CPR and how to resuscitate a baby, child or adult, which could potentially save a life. In particular, we offer anyone that looks after children a route to free, or subsidised first aid training. In these relaxed sessions, basic skills are taught which allow people to confidently administer first aid. With Simplyhealth’s generous donation, we can offer training courses to 100 local people who would otherwise be unable to afford it, or not have access to a session.

We are proud to offer our support to Millie’s Trust. Joanne and Dan do a fantastic job in the local community helping to raise awareness and educate people on the basics of first aid. Everyone should be aware of basic first aid and the charity does a great job in bringing this issue to light.

Millie’s Trust was set up this year after nine month old Millie Thompson died from a choking incident whilst at nursery. Millie’s Trust was started in her name by her parents Joanne and Dan Thompson to provide education and training in first aid.
