NATIONAL CARBON MONOXIDE CHARITY NEEDS YOU!

October 10, 2012 Blog 0

The national charity for raising awareness of Carbon Monoxide poisoning is calling out for your support

Carbon Monoxide Awareness is a registered national charity based in the North West.  They actively support the victims of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning and also successfully raise awareness of this deadly gas, known as the “silent killer”.

The charity has saved thousands of lives by ensuring people are aware of the dangers posed to them by a range of heating and cooking appliances across all types.

They have been tirelessly supporting victims for seven years, but have themselves now reached a vital crossroads: either more supporters join the team of volunteers to help run the charity or the final curtain may fall later this year.

Support is needed in many areas, but crucially the charity needs supporters to help raise much needed funds. This will enable them to continue to raise the alarm of this silent killer and continue to reach out to victims. Do you think you can help?

The charity is also looking for volunteers to support with promoting the upcoming seventh consecutive annual National Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week which runs from 19th – 25th November. The team welcomes new ideas from all interested supporters.

If any individuals or community groups would like to raise funds for Carbon Monoxide Awareness, or get involved in promoting National Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week please contact the charity president, Lynn Griffiths on lynn@covictim.org to discuss ideas. The more original the better!
