The aim is for the cadets to pass on the life-saving skills they have learnt as cadets such as how to help someone who is choking, how to respond to serious bleeding and how to perform CPR.


Cadets have been inviting their family and friends to the event but it’s also open to the public.

It’s being run in conjunction with the British Heart Foundation’s Heartstart campaign and is being supported by Trent Community First Responders.


Adult volunteer, Officer Commanding for 209 Squadron, Flight Lieutenant Jade Brock, said: “Our cadets have learned these life-saving techniques as part of the Air Cadet syllabus.


“You will never know when you might need them but they really could save someone’s life and we’re delighted to be able to pass the information on to the wider community.


“We look forward to welcome members of the public to the Heartstart event on Thursday 20 July.”
