Lessons 4 Life is a not for profit organisation that teaches free first aid sessions in schools.
They innovative one day first aid programme includes practical sessions such as CPR, recovery position, wounds and bleeding, using a defibrillator and choking as well as interactive sessions on how to call for an ambulance, how to prioritise patients and how the ambulance service works.
When teaching in schools across Hull and Yorkshire they have discovered that many children have not been inside an ambulance, those that had been in the back of an ambulance it was when someone they care about was ill or injured. They have also discovered that many children are scared of going into an ambulance as they do not know what to expect.
Lessons 4 Life want to change this, and they need your help to do so.
Lessons 4 Life are also launching a campaign to win votes on social media so they would really appreciate you liking and sharing any social media posts about the ‘Aviva Ambulance’ project too.
