Members of the 1st Torrance Girls' Brigade Company were trained in life-saving CPR skills by St John Scotland volunteers this week.
Volunteer, Stuart Mathewson, led the session, helped by daughter Kay, who is also a supporter of St John Scotland. The group were also shown how to use a defibrillator, and are now all equipped with the skills and confidence to step in and save a life, if they are present when someone goes into cardiac arrest.
St John Scotland is proud to be a partner of Save a Life for Scotland, which aims to teach 500,000 people CPR skills by 2020. We host public pop-up CPR training events across the country, as well as linking in with local community groups to help people of all ages learn the life-saving skill.
