In collaboration with the British Heart Foundation, Houndshill Shopping Centre are delivering free CPR training in the centre on 19 April.
There will be 40 places on offer over 3 sessions throughout the day - book your place to come and learn this valuable lifesaving skill.
The training will include Adult CPR, Child CPR information about defibrillator usage and the recovery position and an opportunity to ask questions.
All participants will receive a certificate after successfully completing the session, the certificate will remain valid for 2 years.
Survival rates from out of hospital cardiac arrest remain stubbornly low in the UK, with fewer than one in ten people surviving. The British Heart Foundation (BHF) estimate that up to 5,000 more lives could be saved every year if CPR was taught more widely. In fact, when someone suffers a cardiac arrest, their chance of survival can double if a bystander immediately performs CPR.
If you would like to reserve your place simply contact Debra Day on 07795 451911 or email her on email@example.com (and please mention that you saw it here, thanks!)

At Houndshill Shopping Centre - 22 April between 10am-4pm
Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland and the Stroke Association have teamed up to help people in Blackpool take a moment and get their blood pressure tested.
They will be hosting free blood pressure tests at The Houndshill Shopping Centre, Victoria Street on 22 April 2017 10am-4pm to raise awareness of the link between high blood pressure and stroke.
Over half of all strokes can be caused by high blood pressure. As well as having a blood pressure check, local residents in Blackpool will also receive advice on steps to keep it under control and reduce their stroke risk.
A Rotary Representative said:
“Having a stroke can be devastating but people can reduce their risk significantly by paying attention to their blood pressure. Rotary is proud to support the Stroke Association’s Know Your Blood Pressure campaign because it is both simple and effective. The test takes a moment to do and potentially, it could save your life. Last year we held 1680 events around the country and this year we are keen to reach even more people.”
Alexis Wieroniey, Deputy Director of Policy and Influencing at the Stroke Association, said:
“Having a regular blood pressure check is so important. Estimates suggest there could be almost seven million people with high blood pressure who are undiagnosed and at risk of having a stroke. Many people have high blood pressure without realising it because it often has no symptoms. High blood pressure is far more common than you would think and it can be deadly, but it is treatable. With events like this, together we can conquer stroke.”
In addition to the events taking place on 22 April, there will be blood pressure checks throughout the year.

The Tableau is a massive 100ft display which features a magical water garden and an 8ft bridge and is perfect for everyone exploring the illuminations on foot.
The new Alice’s Garden is co-designed by Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and the in-house team and it draws on the story of Alice in Wonderland and, in particular, the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. You can see how it's all brighter and more modern than the old version - fit for todays Illuminations display.
To celebrate their new display, the Houndshill shopping centre recently ran a competition to give their shoppers the opportunity to win a once in a life time experience to switch-on the lights of ‘Alice’s Garden’.
Donna Hannigan from Blackpool was the lucky winner of the amazing prize and she won this rare experience to turn on the Lights in 2014 by tweeting @HoundshillSC to say who she would invite her own Mad Hatter’s Tea Party! Donna would invite "My crazy friends Becca, Chenele, my 3 awesome children, my partner steve n my mum cause they always crazee x"
Donna had a fantastic time with her family at Alice’s Garden, located on the Cliffs section on the North Promenade, when she switched the Lights on at 8pm on Thursday 4 September.
