Hundreds of people learn about CPR and defibrillators in free public workshop

More than 130 people performed CPR on a dummy and learned about defibrillators in Petersfield last month. 

The sessions, overseen by Saving Lives Together (SaLT), commenced every 15 minutes from between 10am and 2pm.

Each session was about an hour in length with participants being presented with a certificate at the end. The large free public event was at Rams Walk.

Jackie, who is a part of the SaLT team, says the day was hugely successful.

She said: “The event went really well. We had about 138 people of all ages have a go at CPR and find out more about defibrillators.

“Everyone very enthusiastic and interested in what we are trying to achieve which was great.”

Saving Lives Together is a newly formed charity which is currently awaiting its registration number. Everyone involved in the day were volunteers.

The primary focus of the team is to provide free CPR training and defibrillator awareness. They have engaged with at least 200 people since January 2018.
