We’re over the moon to be working with Welsh Hearts Calonnau Cymru, the leading heart charity for Wales. We’re already ordering our Santa hats ready for the Cardiff Santa and Elf Dash in December!
Aside from planning our outfits for the charity’s many upcoming dinners and fundraising events, we are also going to be taking part in its vital CPR and defibrillator training sessions, helping to transform the Yogi team into potential lifesavers.
Welsh Hearts is all about providing better access to heart screening and defibrillators. Its mission is to get 500 defibrillators in public places across Cardiff to help people suffering sudden cardiac arrests have a fighting chance. Anyone can use one of these lifesaving devices with little or no training and they can increase the chances of survival by 50% if used quickly. That’s why its latest campaign is called Every Second Counts. We think it’s a campaign well worth getting behind.
To raise money for more defibrillators and free heart screening sessions to help detect hidden heart problems, Welsh Hearts has a whole host of events coming up from a Hoe Down Ball and an opera dinner, to summer fairs and family walks.
There is something for everyone so there is no excuse not to get involved and help to save lives. Check out the full list of events www.welshhearts.org/events. We’ll see you there!
