LIVES First Responders are offering free first aid training in Bourne




People can train to be lifesavers at two events taking place at the Galletly Medical Practice in North Road, Bourne.

Members of LIVES, Lincolnshire's First Responders, will be providing free first aid training for anyone wishing to come along.

The training will give advice on how to provide the best initial care for someone who is choking, suffering an allergic reaction, poisoned, or who has been injured, as well as how to provide CPR and to use defibrillator.
