The Big Birthday Appeal is celebrating its recent success having raised over £200 for Jewish children in need from their Kids Aid event this Tuesday.

The charity held the fun and informative fundraiser at the home of Nicola Fine in Hale, Cheshire. The event provided parents, grandparents and carers with invaluable first aid advice and techniques for children and was hosted by two leading pediatricians, Dr Alison Jobling and Dr Colin Bernstein.

After gaining first aid advice from Dr Jobling – who was assisted by her daughter, Milly, aged 10 – and Dr Bernstein, the guests took part in a workshop where they were able to practise the various first aid techniques, such as resuscitation, on dummies.

Judith Moryoussef, co-founder of the Big Birthday Appeal, commented: “The hands-on workshop was fantastic and we all learnt many crucial life-saving skills.

“It was very apt that we were able to raise money for poorly children, whilst also learning how to administer first aid to our babies and children.”
