Burnham-on-Sea running club go the extra mile
PUBLISHED: 16:00 14 April 2017
A Burnham-on-Sea running club had a training session with a difference this week as they went the extra mile to learn how to perform CPR.
Burnham Harriers took part in a 6km run and were then trained by a nurse from Weston General Hospital in CPR and how to use a defibrillator.
Eleven runners took part in the training.
This comes after the running club, along with Burnham and Highbridge Town Council and Sedgemoor District Council, raised funds to install a defibrillator at Apex Park in Highbridge.
A spokesman for the running club said: “It seemed a good idea to train members in the life saving skills of CPR and learn how to use the defibrillator should an emergency occur.”
