enough money to equip her schools and karate clubs with life-saving

Ghadie, alongside TV’s Dr Dawn Harper and
Sue Killen, Chief Executive of St John Ambulance, said: ‘This
year’s finalists have some truly remarkable stories to tell. It’s
wonderful to be able to recognise the Everyday Heroes who are
saving lives and encouraging others to do the same, and I hope they
inspire others to learn first aid so they, too, can be the
difference between life and death.
‘We can’t wait to welcome these deserving nominees on the
evening and show our appreciation for their selfless efforts.’
