do something else mr award winner, get the BFF to train the volunteers to run courses, the useless contacts can't be bothered to run courses, citing lack of interest. What a joke. Even if one person attends a course it could save a life. idiots

Sharpharp

The email contacts for ones I tried were useless, the BFF need to train their volunteers on customer service skills before anything else. When enquiring, you get a response saying their isn't enough interest to run the course Wrong mentality, shame on BFF

If not trained in resuscitation I believe they say go with compressions to encourage people to at least attempt to help but if had training always best to do both. Especially if you don’t know the cause & no clinical reason not to keep away from the mouth. If in a medical setting they would always perform both only we have equipment and don’t perform mouth to mouth but always ventilation along with compressions. Compression only is better than nothing but both together is preferable for a favourable outcome especially after a couple of minutes. Of course prevention is better than cure. People living longer with more complex issues with more & more medications.

firstofficer

I believe so re rescue breaths, although not sure.. don;t the compressions themselvescauses a similar effect to ventilating the lungs? Not sure what the courses teach... although guidelines seem to change every few months including ratios etc. Oh, well.. I guess its better to prevent things like heart attacks in the first place, hence my constant discouragement to people putting on deals here for crisps, chocolates, beer, cakes, pork scratching etc.

Hapzy

No my response is the same anywhere. Plus I’d be struck off if discovered but obviously want to help anyone, anywhere. I spend a lot of time in USA even lived there still help there. Do they not teach lay people to do rescue breathes now? Even If you complete a course? It’s better to perform rescue breaths along with chest compressions but I’m aware that they stated compressions only is better than nothing & to increase the amount of people to attempt resuscitation who are not trained or confident. Though it depends upon the cause of the arrest if a child or respiratory arrest causing it for instance it’s better to do both. To be honest I wouldn’t want to do mouth to mouth on everyone! I have a mask on a keyring I could use.

I attended this course last night (11/4) at the HQ London Ambulance Service near Waterloo, London with my 10 year old son (he was the only youngster there. We both did the course and had a practice session at doing CPR and was also shown how to use the Defibrillators. We both thoroughly enjoyed the course. The tutors were good and we received a Certificate each with a small guide book. So well worth going if you can. My son said this morning that he enjoyed it and now he keeps doing the CPR hand movement and making the clicking sounds - LOL I feel it is very important that at least 1 person in every household / work place should learn Basic Life Support skills. If it means we can save a life then that is one less death.

spellcheck

Did my course the other day near Waterloo (London Ambulance Service HQ). It was led by a volunteer from St. Johns Ambulance. Really useful and informative, I have to say. We covered CPR, getting folks into the recovery position, and even how to stem heavy bleeding. I hope I never have to use these skills but it's nice knowing just in case the time comes! :)

This looks like an easy explanation http://www.foodmatters.com/article/the-6-greatest-cholesterol-myths-debunked Search good calorie bad calories wheat belly keto paleo. There is a lot to read about.

Pateo

Whole heartedly agree, sorry no pun intended! I've just buried my head knowing I already previously had high bp two years ago! I'm a coward when it comes to anything medical, especially to do with having blood tests as I'm needle phobic, I've been known to pass out, either that or literally run out of health center when waiting for blood test! But it's finally caught up with me and I've had to face up to it! I've actually got to and see my Dr later today for results of ECG/blood tests.I'm not looking forward to my appointment later but I know I've got to face up to the hard truths and deal with it (embarrassed) Update My blood pressure came down quite considerably, Dr said BP tablets doing the job! ECG basically clear! Blood test a slightly raised cholesterol level! Dr asked me if I drink a lot of alcohol,as liver blood function a bit of concern! But I only drink approximately every other day one 330ml bottle of beer or Cider at home, very seldom go drinking at weekend! Dr didn't believe me! Asked me several times"are you sure". Said I needed to stop all alcohol and come back for another liver function blood test in three weeks!

smallsteve

I have slightly raised levels of blood pressure and cholesterol, even though I have been vegetarian for 30 years, always eaten well and train seven days a week! Last December I had to go to Papworth for heart surgery and the cardiologist told me that I ‘got away with one there’! Two complete occlusions (blockages) in the artery that is nicknamed ‘Widowmaker’. Thing is with heart problems is that many people don’t realise they have an issue, up to the point where they keel over. Don’t assume you are okay because you feel fine, or keep yourself reasonably fit. Particularly if you are male and over 40, you should get your blood pressure and cholesterol checked every few years.

They make a lot of their money from the council and Government in vouchers handed out to people in need. there are organisations around the country that give out furniture vouchers to people who are vulnerable and have just been found a new home, these can average about £250 and can only be used in a handful of charity shops, the main one being the Heart Foundation, so they get a lot of money that way and can charge crazy amounts for rubbish skip ready furniture as these people have no other place to spend their vouchers. So they end up with a second hand bed, wardrobe and wonky drawers for something like £250 when they could get new from Argos for less.. Eeeek! oO

Firefly1

I can't say that I was pestered or even approached, but when I went to one of their stores which specialises in selling furniture, I was astounded at the prices of the second-hand donated goods. Lots of items were in the hundreds of pounds, and it - to me - felt more like a 'business' retailer (not charity) than a second hand shop selling donated furniture. I had the exact same thoughts that I could get items in the major retail outlets at similar prices but brand new and exactly to my taste due to the wider choice.

sandrabear

They don't sell things at a reasonable price I went in and a rickety old wardrobe was £200 plus £15 delivery, they also said they'd dismantle and it was your responsibility to put it back together. I was pestered something rotten in that shop to buy something that wasn't worth anything, in the end I got 2 solid burred walnut wardrobes off ebay delivered for forty quid. People who go in to buy stuff generally can't afford to buy new, only to be guilt tripped and ripped off.

Actually the bhf dont take on mandatory work placements, only voluntary ones from the job centre. They have to turn people away if the placement feels in any way forced to work, or is under the impression their benefits will be affected in anyway as this is not the case. Managers will ask this question before getting into the interview and the job centre can actually get into trouble if they make people feel like they have to do a placement with the bhf as its in their agreement, that they don't take mandatory placements. Bhf only take placements from the job centre or anywhere else that have been offered the chance of work experience and they have themselves chosen the bhf. They want people who genuinely want to be there and in return they provide nvq's for free, references and work experience. Also the paid staff dont make much money, they mostly work alot of overtime which is unpaid and the best stuff is not kept for staff as everything gets priced and put out on the shop floor first, the shops have very hard targets to hit on everything in the shop, so it would make no sense to be keeping things back, when targets have to be met in order to make as much money for charity as possible. Its a surprisingly hard job for very little in return apart from the want to raise as much as possible to help save lives. We are good people just trying to help others, not sure about higher up the ladder after shop staff, but I know its not the case in our shop.

If in Cumbria try Impact housing , but no-one will take upholstered furniture which doesnt have a fire safety label on it. For these items use Freegle or similar - www.freegle.in/"name of town" will link you to appropriate group. I do have some sympathy for BHF their aim is to make as much money for BHF - Heart disease research etc - not to provide furniture and items at below market value . They will therefore need to balance what they take with what they can sell and also keeping their donors happy !

syt2012

Hi Coffee100, BHF came 2 weeks ago to pick up two wardrobe from us and some clothes etc. I do understand what others said about they can be fussy. The wardrobes were old fashion but clean and definitely can sell to make some money. They weren't sure in the beginning, took it in the end but the feeling I get from them is like they don't really want to take it. I thought is good to pass it on to charity so they can get some money from it and I am doing a good cause. Truth is, I don't think I will bother next time as I have to wait from 7 to 3pm and on the day they specified. I changed my plan so I can stay home and wait. The good thing is they do text you an hour before. Still, my whole day is pretty much gone. Would you consider giving your fridge to a homeless charity? I saw the advert on streetlife and I have contacted them myself. I will be giving them my fridge as well. https://www.streetlife.com/conversation/pdgnqwjpsr6/

Coffee100

Booked a collection, hope they take it. I've heard they can be rude or fussy. Anyone know of any other sites that collect goods in west London?

The trouble is, they won't take your tatty sofa.... We use local ones now so know the money goes where it's supposed to and not to pay for some suit to sit on a beach in the Bahamas....we've also got better quality stuff from our local Freegle/Freecycle sites for free. We do have some local projects like Eset posted the link to but even some of them get a bit greedy and sort of pointless saying things like "at affordable prices to people on low incomes" when they are even too expensive for those with a small little budget.

I think it's a bad idea too, unless you somehow reappropriate the stuff they send you. The BHF are a horrible charity, and any money would have gone towards doing this to animals: http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/425965/EXCLUSIVE-Outrage-as-major-UK-charity-uses-donations-to-fund-vivisection-tests-on-dogs ...and this to people: https://johnnyvoid.wordpress.com/2012/09/08/british-heart-foundations-workfare-lies/ ...so the less stuff out there that's promoting them, the better.

Great that you are willing to save someone's life, but I think you have missed the point of campaign. For those that have been trained to give chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth, then they should do what they have been trained to do. Many people have never received any training or received training many years ago- in these people, the instructions in this advert could save someone's life. Most cardiac arrests are caused by heart problems. These patients often have high levels of oxygen in their blood when their heart stops working properly, so mouth-to-mouth is not essential. In a very small sub-set of people (typically those who have drowned or been strangled) is mouth-to-mouth important. The medical evidence very much supports the delivery of high-quality chest compressions.... these are what save people's lives.

St johns ambulance is the equivalent to a paramedic, what the salvation army is to SAS

squarehead94

This is completely wrong. Sometimes you can only revive someone using mouth to mouth. Thanks, but I'll stick to my own life saving methods I've learned from St. Johns Ambulance. Like someone is going to complain if you perform a life saving procedure on them.

I found this page as I too am having a major gripe with British Heart Foundation. I booked a collection of a really nice piece of handmade furniture, which I only wanted to get rid because of a house move. There's a slight fault in the way the door closes (which isn't obvious once door is shut). As it's a lounge storage unit, not a kitchen cabinet I can't see anyone having an issue with this and I never have. I now have 2 days to get rid of it! I've often visited one of their large stores and my cabinet is a much better quality item than some of the absolute rubbish I've seen in their shop. Mmmm - methinks the fact it's heavy and needed carrying downstairs had a little something to do with it...?

asbokid

Are the donated goods actually being sold by the BHF? Some charities use commercial collectors who export the goods for private sale. Only 40% to 50% of the sale proceeds ever get to the good cause. Some of the charity collectors are multi-millionaires. The Guardian and the Daily Mail both investigated the commercial collectors for the rag trade who work for one of Britain's best known charities.. ( not the BHF)

Polly_P

Hmm so why did you smash it up?. even if it was too big i'd take it with me still. i dont smash anything up, i hang onto stuff till it's falling apart :D I think BHF is good, and they have lots of these shops up and down the country. they have lots of tvs, only the big back tellies though, and vhs recorders too, furniture, and beds, i guess its right though, the table thing, it'd look a bit odd with non matching chairs, but even so, maybe some dont mind?. maybe they know people wont buy a table without chairs.

Orinocho

I've had no problems in using BHF @ Cheetham Hill/Salford & have used their collection service twice without any problems, I did not have to provide a certificate, but the 3 piece did need to have the right fire label, they also collected a tv which was without a stand & I have taken goods to the store which they happily accepted.

C00KIEM0NSTER

And how many of us have chairs but no table? They can sell the wood on to the recyclers just as they can rags and electricals.
