Countdown on for Friday's Record Attempt

16 May 2016

There's not long to go until the Proact Stadium hosts Friday's World Record attempt, as we try to get over 1,700 people on the pitch learning essential first aid.

The event will start at 10am this Friday (May 20) at the Proact and is backed by the British Heart Foundation's 'Heart Start' campaign - and all are welcome to come along on the day and be part of what is hoped to be a new world record for people taking part in a first aid lesson.

Anyone of any age can come and join in the lesson for FREE, just pop along to the Proact on Friday morning and learn the skills that one day could save someone's life.

Organiser Deborah Watson spoke about the numbers being expected at the Proact: "We think we've got in the region of 1,800 school children and the current record is 1,700 which was set in Abu Dhabi. 

"We're fairly confident we're going to beat that record. We're hopeful other members of the public will come and we'll have over 2,000 people on the day."

Cheryle Berry is also part of the organising team and explained the plan for the day: "When people come on Friday morning they can look forward to an exciting day but also one where they can learn skills which could help them save a life - we think that's pretty unique.

"We will be on the pitch here and we want every single participant to feel proud of themselves because they could literally save a life from the things they learn here on Friday."
