Lifesaving event at The Forum Shopping Centre 

On Friday 18th and Saturday 19th March, The Forum Shopping Centre in Sittingbourne teamed up with St John Ambulance to host a special Save a Life event.

Throughout the two days, many shoppers took part in 21 short sessions where they were taught essential first aid training including how to administer adult and infant CPR, how to stop choking, how to identify a stroke and how to stop bleeding.

Up to 150,000 lives in the UK could be saved every year if more people had basic first aid training. According to a survey commissioned by St John Ambulance, 59% of people wouldn’t feel confident enough to perform first aid with 24% saying they wouldn’t do anything and instead wait for an ambulance to arrive. 

Monica Rana, Centre Manager of The Forum Shopping Centre, commented:

“I would like to thank St John Ambulance for hosting the Save a Life event, it was extremely helpful and proved very popular with our shoppers. It’s essential to teach people first aid as it gives them the confidence to help in an emergency situation.”
