Foresters Weekend

In May we held our annual Foresters Weekend at Les Cotils. We were pleased to see a good turnout with many taking the opportunity to visit Guernsey for the weekend.

Evening events were held on Saturday and Sunday – both were well attended and enjoyed by all.

We were pleased to join the congregation of St Pauls Methodist Church for their Sunday Service. Prior to the service we presented The Reverend Howard Stringer with a defibrillator. The defibrillator has been installed on the outside of the church and is accessible to all the users of the area, including visitors to Vale Primary School.

In the evening we were joined by invited guests representing local good causes receiving Foresters support. During the event cheques were given to Les Bourgs Hospice, the Guernsey Table Tennis Association, Northern Bowls and the Guernsey Cheshire Home.

Further cheques were presented to the High Chief Ranger’s chosen Charity, Action on Hearing Loss and Naomi House & Jacksplace (Winchester, Hampshire), hospices for children and young adults.

Thanks to everyone who attended and made the event such a success.

Worried about A&E fees?

Our Managing Director is encouraging local residents to consider local healthcare insurance options in response to the recent tweet from a Mother highlighting the cost of taking her daughter to A&E.

“I would encourage islanders to find out more about the options available to provide medical cover for their families.

“There are local alternatives to mainstream health insurance, tailored to meet the needs of local residents. These offer the peace of mind that if you or your children need to visit the A &E or Doctor you can do so without the worry of whether you can afford the visit. Islanders are often unaware of the need for the cover until medical care is needed.”

Foresters Healthcare donates another community-use defibrillator

On Sunday, Foresters Healthcare were delighted to present St Pauls Methodist Church with a defibrillator. The defibrillator will be installed on the outside of the church so it is accessible to the many people that use the area, including visitors to Vale Primary School. 

The society has now donated 4 of defibrillators. 

Managing Director, David Le Poidevin explains how the society know firsthand why such a donation can save a life, “Back in 2016, The Foresters donated a defibrillator the Guernsey Table Tennis Association, instrumental in that decision was our Non-Executive Director Derek Carter. In April 2018, whilst umpiring a doubles match Derek required assistance from the same machine he had been involved in donating after suffering a heart attack.” 

“Whilst we hope the defibrillator at St Paul’s will never be called in to action Derek’s story highlights how having one to hand really can be a life saver.”

The defibrillator needs to be fitted, but it is hoped it will be in place soon.

Pictured are Chief Ranger, Paul Stanford presenting the defibrillator to the Reverend Howard Stringer and Foresters Healthcare Managing Director, David Le Poidevin.
