St John Ambulance is calling for nominations for the St John Ambulance Everyday Heroes awards. The awards are an annual event celebrating the nation’s life savers.

 The first aid charity 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.

 This year’s finalists will be invited to an awards ceremony, hosted by sports presenter Kirsty Gallacher, at the Lancaster London hotel on 1 July 2015.

Sue Killen, Chief Executive at St John Ambulance, said: “The St John Ambulance Everyday Heroes awards give us a chance to celebrate and honour ordinary people who’ve done extraordinary things. We’re looking for anyone that’s gone out of their way to help people through first aid – from life savers, to campaigners, to teachers, to fundraisers.

 “Every year I am moved by the amazing nominees and their inspiring stories – they are all living proof that first aid can save lives. If you know someone who deserves recognition, nominate them for an Everyday Hero award.”
