I went to visit the British Heart Foundation shop in the Port Arcades who raise thousands of pounds every year for the charity through the sale of new and second hand goods in their shop. It was clearly a busy and well run shop with lots of volunteers. There was also an opportunity for me to look at their portable CPR training equipment which was a long way from the life size plastic bodies I recall seeing when I was younger. The BHF have an aim to have as many people in this country trained in CPR, the training takes just over an hour and could save somebody’s life in the future. They are keen that community groups have the opportunity to train on the equipment so anyone who would like to do so is asked to call Andrew at the shop on 0151 355 4069. They are also always keen to hear from more volunteers and donations of goods to sell.
