THOUSANDS OF VOLUNTEERS MAKING A REAL DIFFERENCE.

Every year in Scotland, thousands of volunteers make a difference to the lives of others through first aid.

The skills they've learned and are able to put into practice can be the difference between a life saved and a life lost. St Andrew's First Aid celebrates these inspirational first aiders by recognising their achievements at the annual Scottish First Aid Awards.

This year's awards ceremony is being held at the Glasgow City Hotel on November 27. The prestigious black tie event is set to be a glittering occasion with live entertainment and a three-course meal.

Most importantly, it's an opportunity to pay tribute to Scotland's first aid heroes and acknowledge their outstanding work and heart-warming stories.

Among those honoured are individuals and businesses who have championed first aid and helped to create more first aiders in our local communities.

In a crisis, it's vital that first aid is delivered with confidence - and St Andrew's First Aid provides Scotland with the highest standards in skills, services and volunteering opportunities.

The charity provides first aid cover wherever it's needed - whether that be at football matches, music festivals or other community events. They rely on volunteers of all ages and backgrounds selflessly giving up their spare time so that they can help others in need in an emergency.

Awards will be presented in seven categories on the night: Young First Aid Hero of the Year.

St Andrew's First Aid Young Volunteer of the Year.

St Andrew's First Aid Volunteer of the Year.

Organisation of the Year for First Aid Excellence.

Community First Aid Champion.

First Class Award for a teacher or educational establishment.
