It takes fifty hours to learn to drive but only two to learn how to save a life.
What else are you going to do in that time that is going to make such a difference?
Watch ‘stars in their eyes’ twice over?
It can take just four minutes for someone with a blocked airway to die, but eight minutes for an ambulance crew to arrive.
Your two hour training would show you how to save that life immediately.
The idea of saving someone’s life is cool.
In fact, it's about as cool as you can possibly get, especially when you realise that statistically the person you help is unlikely to be a stranger.
They’re more likely to be a friend or relative.
Imagine saving your best friend's life.
Imagine giving up two hours of your incredibly busy schedule juggling the school run, food for the weekend and sending emails, with something really important.
