It’s now less than 24 hours until we attempt to break the world record for the largest first aid lesson at the Proact, and here are all the details you need to know.
Firstly, the attempt is starting at 10am, so we ask all those who wish to participate to arrive at the stadium by 9.30am. Directions for entrance will be up and around the stadium car park and there will also be stewards on hand if you require further assistance.
Admission is by ticket and completely FREE, you can obtain your ticket at various points around the outside of the stadium. The car park will also be open and free to use for those involved.
Once inside, you’ll be directed to a grid on the pitch where you’ll be in a group of 50, led by at least one facilitator and one steward. In your grid, they’ll be a plastic sheet to kneel and sit on, in case the pitch is wet.
After the lesson, which should last approximately 50 minutes, everybody will receive a certificate and a medal. Other goodies will be on offer to grab too, such as BHF pens and wristbands.
Some well-known personalities from the local area will also be in attendance, with Natasha Engal (MP for North East Derbyshire), Dennis Skinner (MP for Bolsover), Steve Brunt (mayor of Chesterfield), Barry Bingham (ex-mayor of Chesterfield), Dan Swaine (chief executive of Bolsover District Council), Estelle Stephenson (British Heart Foundation) and Chester the Fieldmouse expected to be along to support the event.
We ask that everybody attempts to perform the training exercises to the best of their abilities, as that’s how the Guinness World Record judge will classify whether you’ve participated and count you towards the final number.
Everyone will also leave the stadium with key life saving skills and have the knowledge of how to save a life.
