One Stop retailer Gitesh Adeshara has installed a bleed control unit at his store, Winsford News – One Stop & Post Office in Coventry.
The kit is donated by The Liam Taylor Legacy, a foundation set up in memory of Liam Taylor, also known as ‘Fish’, who was tragically taken by knife crime on January 31, 2020, aged 19, to prevent any further tragedies of this kind happening in the area.
The foundation and Julie Taylor, Liam’s grandmother, have worked hard to ensure that bleed control units are available around the community of Coventry and beyond. Using these kits, four lives have already been saved.
The store has hosted a community event on Friday, 16 June to unveil the kit.
The event saw Deputy Mayor Mal Mutton, local counsellors, and a joining of community members for free food, refreshments, and fun. Winsford News was The Liam Taylor Legacy’s 15th unit installed.
Speaking on Gitesh’s involvement, One Stop’s head of business development Taranjit Dhillon said: “We would like to thank Julie Taylor for her hard work in her community, and Gitesh Adeshara for being a proud representative of One Stop’s values.”
