Carl Makins from Derbyshire

Carl Makins, 2010sEast Midlands‘In 2011, I went on a trip to India to share my knowledge in life saving skills with others so that they could be the difference in their country too. I was teaching first aid in schools and community groups. It made me appreciate that at St John Ambulance, we work exceptionally hard to ensure that our communities have access to up to date first aid training.

I get a sense of pride from teaching first aid within schools and communities – knowing that we are empowering people to be the difference and help others. When we receive calls to hear that this has been the case – for example a schoolboy saved his dad when he suffered a heart attack while playing tennis – it makes it all worthwhile.’
