A Guernsey first aid scheme would need funds to expand

Sponsorship would be needed for first aid to be taught in secondary schools in Guernsey, St John Training Services has said.

The service has helped more than 2,600 school children as part of its Young First Aider Scheme.

It involves two hour first aid lessons being given to years three, four and five in the island's primary schools.

Andy Bisson, service manager, said sponsorship would allow children to continue to learn valuable life skills.

The first aid courses are run by the St John Ambulance and Rescue Service.
