STREET fundraisers will be taught first aid and given defibrillators under a British Red Cross scheme.

The charity is the first to train its fundraisers in how to save lives, and it follows Red Cross research showing that only 5 per cent of casualties attending A&E were treated by a first aider. Each team will be equipped with a defibrillator.
