ST John Ambulance is appealing for people to come forward with real-life stories of how first aid has helped them.
They want to hear how first aid, from stemming a severe bleed to putting someone in the recovery position, has made a difference.
Amanda Norton of St John Ambulance said: "Every year in Cambridgeshire we train hundreds of people through our first aid courses.
"We sometimes hear from people who have been saved from choking or treated at the scene of a road accident by first aiders, but we're keen to build up a fuller picture of how people in the country are benefitting from knowledge of simple first aid.
You may also want to watch:
"We know how important first aid is and believe that no-one should suffer from the lack of a trained first aider.
"Real-life examples of skills which have saved lives will help us bring that message home to people who might be considering whether or not learning first aid would be beneficial."
