First Aid Awards deadline extendedSt John Ambuance First Aid Awards 2011

The deadline for the St John Ambulance First Aid Awards has been extended due to popular demand.

Entry has been extended to 5pm on Wednesday 7 September. A decision has been made to allow more time for individuals, schools, restaurants, shops and other businesses - who are leading the way in first aid - to enter, due to the bank holiday and a high number of requests for an extension.

In the Workplace Awards, organisations from construction, energy, financial services and many other sectors are encouraged to submit a nomination to get the recognition they deserve for their high standards.

In the Community Awards, St John Ambulance is seeking entries from schools, high street and retail businesses, or those in the leisure and tourism industry.

'The difference' Awards allows recognition for individuals who have used first aid in the workplace or community, or saved a life in a particularly inspirational way.

Taking place in the deluxe Lancaster London hotel on the evening of 30 November, the First Aid Awards ceremony will celebrate the individuals, communities and businesses going the extra mile. Entry is free and closes on 7 September 2011. Nominate now.
