ALMOST 300 children at a Redditch school have been learning life-saving lessons this week, taking on the Restart a Heart challenge.

Tenacres First School were visited by Rob and Maggie Underwood from the Charlotte and Craig Saving Hearts Foundation on Tuesday, to learn all about CPR and how to use a defibrillator correctly.

As well as learning vital life-saving skills, the children decided to take on another challenge promoting heart health – Fill a Heart With Change challenge. The money raised will go the help the heart charity continue to work with the Redditch and Bromsgrove community.

Two of Rob and Maggie’s children currently attend Tenacres and for the whole week the school are taking part in different activities to raise money.

Headteacher at the school, Ceri Marshall, said: “We have been supporters of the charity for a number of years.

“Our amazing school community have fully supported us so far and we are looking forward to raising money to continue the amazing work the charity do.”

All children were awarded certificates for young future lifesavers and now know what to do in a medical emergency.
