Marathon event proves a real life-saver

Evesham Editorial 2nd Jun, 2023   0

AN EVENT to raise awareness of the importance of learning CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) has seen students at the University of Worcester up for a national award.

Those who worked together to bring about the 24-hour CPR Training Marathon fundraiser back in March have been shortlisted in the National Societies and Volunteering Awards.

Worcester Students’ Union’s Raise and Give (RAG) team along with the Paramedic Society are in the running for the Collaboration Award.

The University’s LOCO Show Co, a musical theatre society, was longlisted for the Wellbeing Award, while the Debate Society were longlisted for the Opportunities for All Award.

These Awards recognise the contributions of student volunteers and student-led societies from UK higher and further education institutions.

The groups were chosen from 340 nominations from more than 50 universities.
