The Irish Heart Foundation will need a venue provided which has a large room and the flooring needs to be suitable to kneel on for short periods of time. The room must be able to hold 35 chairs for participants to sit on and there should be enough space for 10 people to practice on the manikins on the floor up the front.
To view the video, ideally a screen will be provided in the room but otherwise a blank wall which can be comfortably viewed by all participants is perfect.
