Shoppers can pick up some life-saving skills along with their shopping tomorrow (Saturday, March 16).
St John Ambulance’s Grantham Badger and Cadet groups will be in The George Centre in Grantham between 9am and 4pm, where they will demonstrate several basic first aid techniques, including dealing with an unconscious patient who is not breathing, administering CPR, treating burns and bleeding, helping someone who is choking, and dealing with an asthma attack. Members of the public can even have a go themselves.
Anyone who takes part in the challenge by attending a training session will be presented with a certificate on the day. The event has been organised by St John Ambulance to mark 25 years since Badger units were founded and 90 years since the charity’s first Cadets joined the organisation.
