A FIRST-AID company which has had to cancel its school sessions because of the coronavirus outbreak is hoping thousands of kids will tune in online to learn lifesaving skills tomorrow.

First Stop Safety Training, set up by husband and wife team Sean and Robyn Duffy, recently ran CPR workshops in Glasgow primary schools.

In the light of the pandemic, they have decided to take the important sessions on to social media.

Sean explained: “We usually deliver this popular workshop to schools and youth groups across Scotland. With everything going on, learning first-aid skills is more important than ever.”

The live session on resuscitation techniques, which will take place on First Stop’s Facebook page at 11am tomorrow, is suitable for children aged seven and above and their parents.

It will last for around 20 minutes.

“All the kids need is their teddy or a soft toy to practise on,” Sean said.

“We have reached out to around 9000 people so far, which is amazing, and we would love to have as many kids tuning in as possible to learn these vital skills.”

Sean, a former personal trainer, and Robyn, who has 10 years experience delivering first-aid courses, set up the company last January.

Specialising in the field of paediatrics, they train nursery staff, new and expectant parents and children.

Sean added: “We know how difficult it can be to entertain children throughout this uncertain time.

"All our courses have been suspended for three months and that means no holiday clubs throughout the Easter break.

“Completing online workshops and tutorials means we can still help.”

Sean adds: “Now more than ever, with the stress our NHS is dealing with, it is important for us all to learn some lifesaving skills.”
