In the Heart of the City its all 'Hands On' at Leicester Sports Fest 2015

The popular Sports Fest organised by LCC's sports regeneration unit in partnership with sporting partners and health and well- being agencies from across the city and county was also celebrating its 10 anniversary of providing a galaxy of sporting opportunities for people of all ages and abilities.
It was also the place for the Leicester public to get 'Hands On ' CPR and how to use a defibrillator and advice from JHMT's medical group led by Dr Mike Ferguson with support from Dr Ffion Davies and Sue Armstrong, Arrhythmia nurse from GGH & Heartsafe UK trainer.
There was plenty of interest throughout the day and take up from families in particular children and young people who without any hesitation were wanting to have a go on the training aids and learn how a few simple skills could make a huge difference between life and death.
Thanks to Dr Mike Ferguson, Dr Ffion Davies and Sue Armstrong for, on behalf of JHMT, taking time out to share their knowledge and skills.
'Congratulations' to Leicester City Council's Sports Regeneration Unit on a memorable and fitting 10th Anniversary Sports Fest 2015
