Search is on for Midlothian’s first aid heroes

Do you know an inspiring first aid champion in Midlothian who deserves the recognition of a Scottish First Aid Award?

They could be a first aid volunteer, a child, or an adult who has displayed remarkable courage. Or perhaps you know a quick thinking neighbour or colleague who has saved someone’s life with their first aid skills?

The St Andrew’s First Aid charity wants to hear about them, and is calling for nominations for the inaugural Scottish First Aid Awards.

Nominations are open until Friday, September 28, and a panel of judges will announce the shortlist in October.
