First aid charity goes in search for Hampshire heroes

LETTER OF THE DAY: Hats off to two top firms

Have your say

DO you know someone who has been the difference between life and death?

If so, St John Ambulance wants to hear from you as it looks for lifesavers from across the county.

The first aid charity is launching a search across Hampshire and the rest of the UK for the individuals and organisations that are making communities a safer place to live and work

It needs the public’s help to find worthy winners.

Sue Killen, chief executive at St John Ambulance said: ‘We’re on the look out for everyday heroes.

‘These are ordinary people who have done extraordinary things, by putting first aid into practise when it matters most or helping more people learn this vital skill.

‘Everyone has the ability to save a life and we want to celebrate those who are doing just that; in their communities, workplaces, and often their own homes.’
