BARNSLEY College students received life-saving CPR skills earlier this month.
With more than 30,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happening every year and less than one in ten people surviving, these early CPR skills that the students have learned can more than double the chances of survival in some cases.
Dafydd Cherry, headteacher at Barnsley College’s 14-16 Direct Entry and Skills Academy, said: “Allowing our students to be part of this global initiative will give our students the skills and information they need to help save a life.
“Giving all young people this opportunity can only lead to a positive outcome and help save a life.”
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
