Save a life with St John

St John Ambulance, the nation’s leading first aid charity, is again running its Save a Life September in Derbyshire.

Launched in 2011, the scheme was hugely successful and over 70,000 people received free first aid guides as part of the campaign. This year the charity wants to reach even more people to equip them with vital first aid skills.

Throughout September, the public will learn how to save a life using five easy to follow techniques and will receive a free pocket-sized first aid guide to carry in case of emergency.

St John Ambulance Save a Life September events will be taking place on 11 September, Vicar Lane Shopping Centre Chesterfield from 9am till 4.30pm; 12 September, Eagle Market, Derby from 8am till 4.30pm; 29 September, The Delph, Swadlincote, Derbyshire from 8am till 4pm and 24 and 25 September, Derby Train Station
