Their aim is to make first aid training readily available for minimal costs and in as many places as possible so that no family has to go throught the same devastating loss.

Mathew Bewley, managing at 3B Training said: “We wanted to support Millie’s Trust as we share their belief that everyone should have access to first aid training.

“Almost all of our employees are first aid trained, we believe it’s an important life skill that everyone should have.

“We decided to run the parent and child first aid courses to show our support to Millie’s Trust and to help more people become first aid trained.”

The course which is designed for children over the age of four, will cover choking, CPR, recovery positions, head injuries, minor injuries and teaching children how to contact the emergency services in the event of an emergency.

The courses are available at the 3B Training centre in Stratus House on Swan Lane in Hindley Green.
