On Tuesday 18th October, thousands of young people around the UK will be given the opportunity to learn how to restart the heart of someone who has suffered cardiac arrest.

The aim is to train more than 100,000 young people how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on that day.

Currently in the UK, less than one in ten people (8.6%) survive a cardiac arrest. If we achieve the same survival rate (25%) as Norway, where CPR is taught in schools, an additional 100 lives could be saved each week - the equivalent to 5000 every year.

To get involved please visit www.resus.org.uk/events/rsah2016/ or speak to your children's, nieces, nephews, etc schools to make them aware of this opportunity.

It may one day help to save your life!
