CPR Counts and the Sutton Coldfield Community Awards for 2019

Last Night the CPR Counts Team was invited to  Sutton Coldfield Town Hall as shortlisted candidates for one of the five Annual Community Awards. We must have been nominated anonymously as the invitation came very much as a surprise to us.

It was an informal but tense evening as we watched the winners of the first four categories being revealed, Academy Award style. Then it came to our turn…

We know it’s not the best quality video you’ll ever see – blame the dim night-club-style lighting and the limitations of the mobile phone – but its the sentiment that counts.

We are, of course, feeling highly honoured and proud today and thank all the many people who’ve helped us along the way to keep our ‘show on the road’. We never could have imagined how this idea from just over two years ago has developed.

What comes next is up to you – we can only run our courses if people keep on coming along.

Let’s all keep working towards giving the people of our town the best possible chance of surviving a cardiac arrest.


Better, by far, to know it and not need it than to need it and not know it
