Aldingbourne Country Centre on Friday 18th October from 12.00 noon.  

The Aldingbourne Trust is inviting the local community to take part in a worldwide initiative to learn how to save a life.

The Restart a Heart campaign (RSAH) is an annual initiative led by the Resuscitation Council (UK) in partnership with The British Heart Foundation, British Red Cross, St John Ambulance, and Yorkshire Ambulance service which aims to improve the low numbers of people surviving out of hospital cardiac arrests.  In 2018 over 238,000 people were trained in CPR by regional Ambulance Services and private providers as part of the campaign.

On and around Wednesday 16th October 2019, an alliance of organisations all over the world will be coming together to increase public awareness of cardiac arrests and increase the number of people trained in life-saving CPR by organising and facilitating training events.  This is the sixth annual Restart a Heart campaign and the second annual World Restart a Heart (WRSAH) campaign.

As part of this worldwide initiative, Aldingbourne Trust have teamed up with Avanti Training Solutions www. avantitraining.co.uk, to hold free CPR training for the local community at the Aldingbourne Country Centre on Friday 18th October from 12.00 noon.  

You are invited to come along on the day to find out more, and learn the basic CPR skills needed to help make a difference when it matters.
