Lifelong Reading FC fan John Hayward has been reunited with the volunteers who saved his life back in March. John and his son were watching Reading take on Barnsley when John suffered a cardiac arrest. Thankfully our first aiders sprang into action and worked together with pitch-side paramedics to shock John’s heart back into action with an AED. What a save!

We believe that it’s absolutely unacceptable that so many people die needlessly – because no one could give them first aid when they needed it.
St John Ambulance teaches people first aid – about 800,000 last year alone – so that they can be the difference between a life lost and a life saved.
As a charity, we’re committed to making sure more people can be the difference between a life lost and a life saved. To do that, we need your help. For more information visit www.sja.org.uk
