• Midshire offers CPR training sessions to staff

        • Midshire worked with the British Heart Foundation on Friday (23rd March) to roll out three Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) training sessions for its 65 Stockport office employees. 

          Having already launched a weekly fresh fruit initiative last year with partner company Fruidel, and working closely with not-for-profit customer Life Leisure to deliver a fitness scheme to staff, Midshire is proud to provide its employees with opportunities for wellness education, healthy eating, and active living.

          Founded in 1961 when UK cardiovascular deaths reached a staggering 300,000 per year, the British Heart Foundation currently supports 1,700 CPR training schemes nationwide, offering packages to communities, corporations, and schools.  

          Natalie Bunyan, Fundraising Manager at the British Heart Foundation said, “for many people in a panic situation it can be hard to know where to begin if someone needs emergency assistance. Our schemes teach people to recognise when someone is experiencing a heart attack or cardiac arrest, what CPR is and how to do it, and how to help someone that is unconscious or choking. Our short-term goal is to create a nation of lifesavers by 2020.”  

          Over 30,000 people experience cardiac arrest each year in the UK outside the relative safety of a hospital, and unfortunately only 1 in 10 survive. The Foundation has been integral in many heart-related medical breakthroughs, including the production of statins, funding pioneering surgery on babies with heart defects, and research into hereditary heart diseases. 

          Debbie Wilson, Operations Manager at Midshire added, “at Midshire we try and promote a healthy lifestyle for all of ouremployees. Being able to perform CPR is a vital skill to have, particularly for those with children or elderly relatives.”
