A rush for first aid courses

ST John Ambulance has been inundated with phone calls wanting to book first aid courses in Spalding.

Courses are being held to teach local residents the skills they need to save a life.

They follow national statistics showing 140,000 people die every year in situations where first aid could have made a difference.

Three dates have been set for courses at St John Ambulance headquarters in Pinchbeck Road starting this month – October 15-16, November 12-13, and December 3-4.
