First published in News

PEOPLE in Halesowen are being given the chance to equip themselves with lifesaving skills.

St John Ambulance will bring its annual Save a Life September first aid drive to Somers Square, on September 18.

The leading first aid charity will demonstrating five easy to follow techniques that could save a life, including CPR.

They will also give out information on where to go for more free tips and first aid advice from 10am to 4pm.

Nick Pitt, the charity's acting community training co-ordinator, said: "Learning first aid is one of the single most important things you can do in your life – and it’s so easy learn. In the time it takes to do your weekly shop you could learn how to stop a friend choking or keep a loved one alive until an ambulance arrives.

"Anyone who needs first aid should get it and the more of us that can help in an emergency, the better. No one should die for a lack of first aid."
