St John Scotland helps create more local lifesavers

St John Scotland volunteers teach CPR in PerthSt John Scotland volunteers in Perth and Aberdeen have been helping members of the public learn how they can save a life with CPR. 

On Saturday, we were in Perth, where our volunteers had organised a free drop-in session at the city's North Church. Alongside members of the local Police Scotland Youth Volunteers group, we helped more than 50 people learn how to do CPR, and also demonstrated how to use a defibrillator in an emergency. Our Perth Area are currently raising money to help fund a defibrillator which will be installed at the church, and will be available for the public to use 24/7.

Meanwhile, our group of volunteers in Aberdeen were at Sunday's Friends of Duthie Park open day for the second year running, where brave visitors battled the rain to come learn life-saving CPR. We were pleased to work together with cadets from 2nd Battalion the Highlanders Army Cadet Force to deliver the training... and if you're an Aberdeen FC fan, you'll be reassured to learn their mascot, Angus the Bull, has been trained as well! 

St John Scotland is proud to be a partner of Save a Life for Scotland, the project bringing together charities and emergency services to help 500,000 Scots learn CPR, to help save an extra 1,000 lives by 2020.
