Hello, I am Anthony Barrett, I live in New Invention Willenhall.
I am trying to raise enough money to provide 10 emergency bleed kits for our local community, to be fitted to suitable buildings in and around Willenhall West Midlands.
I moved to this area in 1976 as a 9 year old, My first friends were Julian Astbury and his Family, we became like brothers, and like brothers had our fights and fall outs but now in our mid 50s still remain good friends.
Julian’s son Reagan, an up and coming plumbing engineer, keen football player and all round beautiful young man, had his life brutally taken away from him when he was fatally stabbed after trouble ensued after a boxing match in Walsall in October 2017.
Being a father of two boys I can only imagine the pain Julian and Helen went through and continue to feel every day at the savage and pointless loss of their child’s life.
I was shocked to see last week that Manchester had just received its first Emergency Bleed kit.
The Emergency Bleed kit provides vital information and bandages, straps and swabs etc to stem the bleed of a victim until the Emergency services arrive.
please help us provide this equipment to at the very least save someone suffering and more than they need.
