SR Timber takes heart

28 November 2018

SR Timber has hosted a Heart Health session for its staff, run by the British Heart Foundation (BHF), which included a demonstration of CPR, as part of its partnership with the charity.

The team at the Nottinghamshire-based company joined in the session as part of World Heart Day to get a better understanding of how to look after their own hearts and what to do if someone has a heart attack.

Staff practised CPR on Annie, the BHF dummy and learned about cardiovascular disease and how to reduce the risks associated with it.

The session was organised by SR Timber’s operations manager Steve Hill.

“The BHF’s Heart Health session was a real eye-opener for everyone at SR Timber, and we’re all very glad we took part because it made us realise that virtually everyone is touched by cardiovascular disease in some way,” he said.

“The session served to help us to double our efforts in raising awareness and much-needed funds for the charity.”
