St John Ambulance is appealing for parents, grandparents and carers to come forward with real-life stories of how they’ve used first aid to save young people’s lives.

Chris Cook, south east training and community projects manager said: “Every year across the region we train hundreds of people in vital first aid skills.

“No-one should suffer from the lack of a trained first aider and we know that real-life examples of people saving lives inspire more people to learn first aid.

“We especially need stories from people who’ve given emergency first aid to babies and young children; if you think your experience could inspire the next generation of life savers we’d love to hear from you.”

Anyone with a first aid story should contact Kate Rutsch on
