Event description

Description

*** Stop Press - further dates being added in Feb. Let Su know if you are interested***

On Friday 12th October 2018, Saroj Khadka suffered a serious cardiac arrest whilst at home.

If you know that you will also know that Saroj's story is remarkable/miraculous. As we set up this CPR training, Saroj is still in hospital: he survived and is recovering, and that is a very very short version of The Truth. What's also true is that if his wife Sarah had not been with him, or had not known CPR, the story would have been different.

The Why:

This then is a local workshop in recognition of that aspect of Saroj's survival: in less than two hours you will learn how to do what Sarah did. It's a strange thing to learn a skill which you hope never to use... but let's at least make sure that each one of us is a strong link in the chain of community that will give the very best chance to someone who suffers a cardiac arrest, or a heart attack.

The Detail:

Fifteen places are available on a first-come, first-served basis for this first session on 26th January in the afternoon. Cost is £15 per head (a second place for a spouse or family member can be made available at a 33% discounted rate). The session will be confirmed fully once 10 people have signed up for it.

Why CPR?

CPR stands for cardiopulmonary resuscitation. It’s a life saving medical procedure which is given to someone who is in cardiac arrest. It helps to pump blood around the person's body when their heart can’t.

Come and learn what CPR is, how to do it, and when to use it.

Our Trainer

Jane Graham is a qualified West Horsley First AId Trainer. She knows about Saroj and has agreed to come and deliver a CPR focussed session, which will include some practice and also a bit about defibrillators.
