CPR Flashmob for British Heart Foundation.

British Heart Foundation CPR BagVarndean's York Place Diner 1884 was victim to a flashmob today, all in aid of the British Heart Foundation's challenge to teach students hands only CPR.

Lunchtime was interrupted by the sounds of the Bee Gees' 'Stayin' Alive', to help keep the perfect rhythm for chest compressions, and a film featuring Vinnie Jones raising awareness.

The British Heart Foundation is the chosen charity of Ellis School, and today's event served as a reminder and refresher for many students of this invaulable life skill.
