World Restart a Heart Day

16th October 2018 is World 'Restart A Heart Day'. HeartStart Malvern is using the day to campaign to businesses in the Malvern Hills area to take up its FREE training in CPR and Defibrillator use. On the 16th we invite local businesses to attend a business networking breakfast followed by one of our 90 minute standard training sessions, where you can learn this essential, potentially life-saving skill. Although the event is FREE to attend we do respectfully ask that you register your attendance for catering purposes and as places are limited to the venue capacity and trainers available. Please message us via Facebook or via our website at www.heartstartmalvern.org.uk


HeartStart Malvern are most grateful to the business networking group WIN Worcestershire Independent Networking for their generous sponsorship of this event.


Although it does not have a business focus, there is a later public open training session between 9.45 and 11.15 if you are unable to make the earlier session. Again, you will need to register your attendance with us.


We look forward to welcoming you on the 16th October.


Heartstart Malvern receives an Education Award.

On 20th July representatives from Heartstart Malvern attended the prestigious Worcestershire Education Awards Ceremony at the University of Worcester due to our nomination as finalists in the Community Involvement Category. We are very proud to announce that we were declared the winners.


This award would not have been achieved without the hard work and dedication of the volunteers in our training team.


Could you be a Heartstart Trainer?

Heartstart Malvern are seeking to increase our award winning team of volunteer trainers. Do you like a fresh challenge? Do you feel confident speaking to people of all age groups? Do you have any time to spare, particularly during the daytime? Do you feel that you could teach people essential lifesaving skills given the appropriate training?


If the answer is Yes, then we would like to hear from you. For further information please contact us at trainingheartstartmalvern@gmail.com

Sarah's Story - "How I saved my Dad's life"

"It was just an ordinary lesson. I wasn’t even really paying much attention. Until Miss Mottershead, our head of Year 9, said to us, this is important, you all need to listen because one day this could really matter."


When Sarah’s father collapsed at home, she carried out CPR to save his life. Sarah had learnt CPR skills at school just two weeks before.


We think everyone should learn the skills to save a life.
