Charity wanting to be told stories

Have your say

A charity is inviting South Tynesiders to tell their real-life stories of using first aid to help babies and children.

St John Ambulance wants to hear how immediate medical help has made a difference to lives.

David Nicklen, projects manager for the charity in the North East, said: “Every year, we train thousands of people in vital first-aid skills and to encourage more people to learn we’re keen to build up a fuller picture of how people in the region are benefiting from a knowledge of simple first aid.’

Anyone with a story to tell can call Andrea McKenzie on 07714 988989 or e-mail andreamckenzie
