St John Ambulance is looking for the nation’s life savers, health heroes and community stars ahead of the 2019 Everyday Heroes awards.

Nominations are open until midnight on 14 June.

The awards celebrate individuals, groups and teams who have bravely stepped forward in the moments that really matter, saving lives with first aid or impacting

community health through volunteering.

There are three categories: Young Hero, Community Hero and Workplace Hero, and outstanding contributions from St John Ambulance volunteers will also be rewarded.

Last year’s winners included a teenager who came to the rescue of a stabbing victim outside her home, a father and son team who saved the life of a former Olympic boxer when he collapsed on their golf course and a football medical team who have successfully resuscitated five patients who have suffered cardiac arrests at their stadium since it opened.

The Everyday Heroes awards ceremony will take place at Hilton London Bankside on 7 October 2019 and will be hosted for a second year by The Reverend Richard Coles.

The ceremony has been attended in previous years by the likes of Katie Piper, Tess Daly, Dr Ranj Singh, Sir Trevor Brooking and Sophie Raworth.

So, if your readers know of someone who deserves to be recognised for their life saving actions, they should nominate them by 14 June to give them a chance of being considered by the judging panel.
