We are currently working on an exciting calendar of events with our 10 fearless Thales charity ambassadors, including a fire walk, bike rides, abseils and skydives! So watch this space for more Thales news.
Speaking about the new partnership, Thales in the UK’s Chief Executive Victor Chavez says: “Too many lives are lost needlessly because people don’t have the basic CPR skills. We aim to raise £200,000 over the next two years to help the BHF create a nation of lifesavers".
Simon Gillespie, BHF CEO, commented:
“Surviving a sudden cardiac arrest is an important area of work for the BHF, and we have ambitious targets to provide CPR training to over 15 million people across the UK by 2020, but we cannot achieve these targets without the support of companies like Thales. We are delighted that Thales colleagues will be learning CPR and funding CPR training in secondary schools and community groups across the UK.
This fantastic contribution will be felt across our communities and will directly impact and improve survival rates to help save lives today”.
