Manager of Muirhouse Community Shop Robert Pearson said
I work full time with the Scottish Ambulance Service and I fully understand the importance of people knowing CPR, when Jo from Muirhouse link up suggested a Flash Mob I thought it was a great idea.
Currently we are running a 6 week CPR awareness from the community shop and what we hope to do is simply get people talking about CPR, How to recognise someone who is in Cardiac Arrest and understand what to do. CPR really does saves lives and the more people who know it the better chance of survival for those who suffer an arrest.
Our shop window has a 5ft anatomical heart which was handmade by Natalia from the Centipede Project and Karma our assistant manager. It’s a massive talking point when people walk past.
Muirhouse Community Shop is open 5 days a week and is fully dependent on Volunteers
