TV presenter Tess Daly will be helping celebrate the inspiring life savers who have been shortlisted for St John Ambulance’s annual award ceremony in London, on Wednesday 26 March.

The finalists are up for a variety of awards, recognising the individuals who have used first aid to save a life and the businesses that have championed the cause, helping to create more first aiders in our communities.

This year’s inspirational finalists include:

  • Joanna Griffin, who gave life-saving CPR to her husband, while at his own father’s funeral
  • Andy Cave, a father whose swift reactions saved his three-year-old daughter’s life when she choked on a coin at home
  • Cody Hartley, an 11-year-old girl who raised enough money to equip her schools and karate clubs with life-saving AEDs
  • Harry Hall, a First Responder, who dedicates his spare time to acting as a First Responder providing life saving support to his local community.

Awards will be presented by celebrities including Dragons’ Den star and businessman Duncan Bannatyne, Coronation Street stars Michelle Keegan and Samia Ghadie, alongside TV’s Dr Dawn Harper and Matthew Wright.

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.’
