Did you know, 3575 children aged 12-18 died last year.

Did you also know that of those 3575 children, 2931 of them died at school/college due to respiration problems.

Of these 2931, Only 182 were give CPR as most staff and students did not know how to do this.

My name is Connor Williams and I am a 16 year old student from Shropshire. I am lucky enough to be trained in first aid and CPR courtesy of the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme that was ran at my secondary school. Since completing these qualifications, I have had to give first aid to many people and I am always prepared to give CPR to anyone that needs it. What if a group of teens are out walking together up on a Moore somewhere and either one of themselves stop breathing or they come across someone that has stopped breathing. They cant just call an ambulance as signal in these remote places is unlikely, they need to treat them. 

Without the skills, this would not be possible. Please join my campaign and make it compulsory to teach CPR to students in secondary schools/colleges.
