Stories about the Charity and what it does

When it came to CPR, we gave it our heart and soul!

At 8 am on the dot we pressed go on the stop-clock and set off on our epic mission to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) continuously for 12 hours.

Not only did we aim to raise money for our Emergency Department Appeal, our team were keen to teach CPR to as many people as possible.

We welcomed colleagues both past and present, local community groups like the Royal Air Cadets, Sports Clubs like Wharfedale Rugby Club and even those coming in for their weekly shop!

In total 734 people took part in the challenge and an incredible £2195.75 was raised.

Our heartfelt thanks go to Morrisons in Skipton for making us feel so welcome and to the St. John’s Ambulance, Police and Paramedic teams that joined us.

Rombalds Radio rocked us all the way to the finish line!

The fabulous team at Rombalds Radio provided the rhythm and beat to help us make sure our compressions were perfectly timed throughout the day. We also did live CPR training throughout the day so even if you couldn’t make it to Morrisons you didn’t miss out.

Thank you to presenters Alex and Stuart for taking their turn and raising an amazing £160 towards our grand total.
