Restart a Heart Day at St John Ambulance London Bridge Centre

St John Ambulance's young volunteers in London Bridge are giving free demonstrations of life saving skills as part of the Restart a Heart campaign.

Working with the Resuscitation Council and other partners, St John Ambulance's first aid demonstrations will contribute to an ambition of teaching more than 200,000 people these skills in October.

While Restart A Heart Day is on 16 October, St John Ambulance's highly trained volunteers around the country will be arranging demonstrations between 9 and 23 October to give people more opportunities to attend.

In London Bridge, the Cadets (aged 10 to 17 years) will be providing demonstrations on Thursday evening.

These sessions, which last an hour, are free to attend and will include practical information on how to deliver Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and deliver shocks to the heart with a defibrillator.

Currently, only one in 10 people in the UK survives a cardiac arrest out of hospital and St John Ambulance and its Restart A Heart partners want to change that. Chances of survival double when someone gives immediate CPR and significantly increases further when a defibrillator is used.

These free sessions are open to the public and don't require booking.

Attendees are welcome to bring along friends and family.
