Learn a life-saving skill for free

February 25 2019

PINTS, Poppadoms and Plasters is the title of the latest initiative from Downend Round Table – and it could help save a life.

The organisation is planning a free event for men aged 18-45 who would like to learn more about first-aid. It involves a free beer, curry and the opportunity to learn a life-saving skill.
During a relaxed and informal evening provided by Acorn Health and Safety, you’ll learn how to perform CPR on infants and children, deal with choking, loss of consciousness, severe bleeding and broken bones.
Downend Round Table's community support officer Paul Wells said: “We are well known in the local community for our annual fireworks display and Santa sleigh, but there’s so much more to Round Table. I’m really looking forward to this event and the opportunity to give something back to our local community.”     
Acorn’s director, Danny Street, said: “With around 60 per cent of the UK population not being trained in CPR, this is a fantastic opportunity for local men to make a real difference and you might even save someone’s life.”
Members of Downend Round Table will be on hand to act a ‘dummies’ throughout the evening and answer any questions you might have.  
The event will take place at Downend Cricket Club on Monday March 11 from 7.30pm. Places are limited. Email hello@downendrt.co.uk to book.
