Association of First Aiders is holding an award presentation at the 2013 First Aid Forward Conference to recognise the importance of our members work. The winning nominee will receive two VIP invitations to the award presentation in Kettering, where they will be presented with a trophy and certificate of recognition for their outstanding contribution to the field of first aid.

Last year's winner Michelle Mc Avoy trained by Harberry Training in Northern Ireland saved a women's life after performing CPR on a lady who collapsed outside a restaurant in County Down. Full details of Michelle's story can be viewed online
