Staff and students from Bishop Auckland College have put their heart and sole into a campaign to raise awareness of lifesaving CPR.
They have backed the #Heels4Hearts campaign led by ITV’s Daybreak programme, which is giving school and college students the opportunity to learn cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
The campaign is appealing to the public to donate unwanted, wearable shoes to British Heart Foundation shops to help fund CPR training kits in secondary schools and sixth form colleges across the UK so young people can learn lifesaving skills.
Bishop Auckland College staff and students stepped up to the challenge, donating 46 pairs of shoes to the BHF shop in Bishop Auckland.
Shop manager Ange Bell said: “We are very grateful to Bishop Auckland College for supporting this campaign and its local British Heart Foundation store.We had very low stock of footwear before their donation bags arrived, and we have even managed to restock our winter collection for later in the year, There were some lovely shoes donated and many of them have already sold.”
