FOUR business owners have set themselves the ambitious goal of getting more than 500 people trained to become life-savers in just one day.

Free sessions on how to give CPR and use a defibrillator are being offered on Wednesday, October 16.

Organisers hope companies will send their entire workforce to the event which is also open to university students and staff.

SeBeau Health Visiting, Mini First Aid, Orchestrate Events and Perks Marketing joined forces to arrange the event, which is being supported and hosted by the University of York.
