St John Ambulance is looking for new first aid volunteers to help cover a wide range of events in Herefordshire.

The charity's highly trained volunteers help keep people safe at events nationwide, springing into action to help with medical incidents and emergencies.

The organisation also helps the NHS by responding to some 999 calls, as well as transporting patients safely.

Every year around 500,000 people, including children and young people, learn how to save a life through its first aid training.

"Our first aiders are part of a team of volunteers delivering help where it's needed, dealing with everything from a sprained ankle to a cardiac arrest," said the health charity's Tony Haines.

"The experience they gain could lead to more advanced roles, including patient transport, cycle response, advanced first aid and emergency response.

"By joining us, you'll make a real difference to your community and have a huge impact on the nation's health."
