The Spireites have been presented with a Guinness World Record certificate to mark the new record set at the Proact Stadium in May.
An event organised by the Community Save a Life Scheme, Bolsover District Council, British Heart Foundation, Rotary International and Inner Wheel saw 1,795 people receive a first aid lesson on the pitch at the stadium - beating the previous figure by nearly a hundred.
One of the organisers, Dr Cheryle Berry, said: ”We were delighted to be able to present Chesterfield Football Club with a Guinness World Record certificate for ‘The Largest First Aid Lesson’.
“The club gave us wonderful support and encouragement, including the use of the Proact Stadium for the actual day. Our aims are to have a lifesaver on every street and to get first aid skills on the curriculum of every school. Community Save a Life Scheme is working with Bolsover District Council plus Rotary and Inner Wheel clubs to achieve these aims.”
There is a meeting on Tuesday, September 6 at 7pm in The HUB at the Proact Stadium, which is open to anyone who would like to help the group achieve their targets.
“Please come and join us and help to promote and teach lifesaving skills,” added Cheryle.
