East Anglian Air Ambulance made a special visit to The Firs Lower School in Ampthill to teach the pupils lifesaving skills.

EAAA critical care-paramedic Neil Flowers held 7 classes, each made up of around 20 Key Stage Two students, to teach them basic CPR when they visited on Monday, January 19.

The EAAA medic wore the signature orange uniform to demonstrate on a CPR model and show the students how to place someone in the recovery position.

Bedfordshire Fundraising Manager, Kay Marter, said: “We are delighted that The Firs Lower School has chosen to support EAAA for future fundraising and we look forward to working with them closely in the future.

“These educational sessions are a brilliant way for young pupils to learn vital lifesaving skills; you never know when you might need them.

If you are interested in an EAAA medic delivering a session at your school, please contact Kay Marter on 01525 718517 or
