First class first aid

MORE school pupils in Hucknall now know how to use first-aid in an emergency, thanks to the schools liaison team of ST JOHN AMBULANCE NOTTINGHAMSHIRE.

It is six years since the leading first-aid charity launched its schools programme, which trains children to acquire skills that can mean the difference between a life lost and one saved.

Since the team began its work, more than 60,000 pupils aged between seven and 18 in more than 175 Nottinghamshire schools, including some in Hucknall, have learned first-aid skills.

Now, more schools are invited to become involved. “We want every pupil in Hucknall to have access to first-aid and health and safety training,” says St John spokeswoman Mo Costin.
