The nation’s leading first aid charity is calling for nominations from Bedfordshire for its annual inspiring awards.

St John Ambulance’s Everyday Heroes awards celebrate stories of first aid heroism from the public.

Everyday Heroes 2015 saw the highest ever number of nominations and St John Ambulance is asking the public to get in touch and tell them about friends, family members, colleagues and even strangers who’ve saved lives or championed first aid.

Gemma Martin, training and community projects manager for St John Ambulance in the East of England, said: “Everyone has the ability to save a life and our Everyday Heroes awards give us a chance to celebrate those who are doing just that. We’re on the lookout for anyone who has gone out of their way to help people through first aid – from life savers, to campaigners, teachers and fundraisers.

“Each year we hear incredibly inspiring stories of ordinary people who have done extraordinary things. If you know someone who deserves recognition for their outstanding first aid achievements, nominate them for an Everyday Heroes award.”

Entries close on Thursday, March 24 2016 and nominees will be invited to a star-studded ceremony in London, at the Grange St Paul’s Hotel, on September 7.
