CPR is always an incredibly useful thing to know and we felt that particularly after football news this weekend, we could re-share instructions for chest compressions to remind everyone.

In the UK there are over 30,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCA) a year where emergency medical services attempt to resuscitate the victim. If every member of the public knew CPR and could administer this until an ambulance arrived, imagine the lives that could be saved ❀️

The children love to dress up πŸ‘—πŸ₯ΏπŸŽ©πŸ’

Dress up encourages creative thinking and communication skills. It allows children to use their imagination and encourages role play 🌟
