Xplode Magazine, based in Bolton has pledged to train young people across Greater Manchester in life-saving skills following Monday’s terror attack on Manchester.
Xplode Magazine’s CEO, Saeed Atcha said:
“At least 5 of our young volunteers were at the Ariana Grande concert on Monday night.
“We are deeply saddened and shocked at the news and when we found out that members of our team were amongst the concert-goers, there was a large level of pain. We’re happy to say that they’re all safe and well, though badly shook and upset.
“Our emergency services did a wonderful job running towards the danger, as we ran away from it and it’s times like this that remind us of the importance of life-saving skills. At Xplode we aim to train Bolton’s young people in emergency first aid and heart-start procedures so that young people can help.
“We’ve seen fantastic community spirit across Greater Manchester. There is more that unites us than divides us and we truly stand together, with Manchester.”
The training, organised by a group of 14-20-year-olds will take place in locations across Greater Manchester.
