Save a life and become a Record Breaker!

We are urging local people to do something amazing and be part of a World Record attempt whilst learning simple, life saving first aid skills at the same time.

Around 1,500 school children and local residents have already signed up to the event and the Council is hoping that more people will come along on the day to help break the current record of 1,700 people undertaking a first aid lesson in the same place, at the same time.

The world record attempt is being organised by the Community Save a Life Scheme, in partnership with Bolsover District Council. Chesterfield FC, British Heart Foundation, Rotary International and Inner Wheel are also offering their support.First Aid World Record Attempt pic

The event will take place on the pitch at the Proact Stadium on 20 May starting at 10:00am and is free and open to anyone aged 9 and over. People are invited to arrive at 9:30am to collect their free ticket and be ready to begin the first aid lesson promptly. The first aid lesson will follow the principle of ‘Simple Skills Save Lives’.

The aim of the event is to give people the skills and confidence to deal with common occurrences such as fainting, choking, serious bleeding, a heart attack and cardiac arrest.

These skills are recognised as some of the most valuable elements of lifesaving training that are relatively quick and easy to learn but would have the greatest impact in the wider community.

Council Leader, Councillor Ann Syrett said, “Providing essential life saving skills to as many people as possible is our goal and if this saves one life then it will all be worthwhile.

“As a council we know how important it is for people to learn first aid skills so we are urging as many people as possible to come along.  It is a chance to be part of something special and learn invaluable skills to keep for the rest of your lives.”

Cheryle Berry, from the Community Save a Life Scheme, said: “We hope to attract 3,000 people to the event and our ultimate aim is to have a life saver on every street.”
