When a Leighton Buzzard air cadet was out walking with a friend she never thought that she would have to help someone in real need.

Cadet Hannah Lloyd from 1003 (Leighton Buzzard) Squadron came across a senior citizen in distress in the town.

Hannah, 15, who has been with the air cadets for two years, said: “We noticed that an elderly gentleman had fallen to the ground and injured his face. My friend called for an ambulance whilst I attended to the man and his distressed wife.

“I was nervous at first when helping the gentleman, however my knowledge from theffirst aid training made me feel a lot more confident.

“After the ambulance had arrived, I felt really proud of myself that I had been able to provide this help. I am grateful to my Squadron for giving me the training and opportunity to help people when they need it.”
