2019 Sponsors and supporters
Everyday Heroes celebrates the impact of St John Ambulance’s everyday heroes across the country. Our event will showcase the incredible impact they have in communities, workplaces, and through young people.
We'd like to say a massive thank you to all of our 2019 Everyday Heroes Awards sponsors and supporters.
Headline Sponsor - ZOLL Medical UK
ZOLL Medical’s mission is to provide unexpected heroes with the tools they need to manage and treat victims of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).
When SCA strikes, a victim’s best chance for survival is immediate CPR and a rescuer with an automated external defibrillator (AED). ZOLL® AEDs lead the way with Real CPR Help® technology that provides real-time feedback to guide rescuers in delivering high quality CPR.
Without AEDs and CPR, the prospects for survival are bleak. Survival rates fall by 10% every minute without action however using an AED within 3 minutes can give up to a 70% chance of survival*.
ZOLL provides AED and CPR solutions for a variety of target markets such as the education sector, shopping centres, leisure facilities, GP surgeries and dental practices, local authorities, places of worship, offices and workplaces, public access cities, towns, villages, and rural locations, hotels and accommodation, marine and offshore, transport services, and many other public places.
ZOLL Medical are proud to be the headline sponsor of the St John Ambulance's Everyday Heroes awards in recognising the importance of first aid skills, such as CPR, in saving lives. Congratulations to all the nominees and winners.

Entertainment Sponsor - Laerdal Medical UK
In 1960, Asmund Laerdal established the need for a lifelike manikin to train the new concept of mouth-to-mouth ventilation. He used his soft plastics expertise, together with Dr. Bjorn Lind and Dr Peter Safar, to develop Resusci Anne, our first product.
Today, Resusci Anne and our other products, programmes, and services contribute to us achieving our mission of Helping Save Lives. More than 300 million people have been trained in CPR, some of them using Resusci Anne, and it is estimated that at least two million lives have been saved.

With special thanks to - Room to Reward
Room to Reward is a unique charity created to give something back to those volunteers who do so much, for so many. All over the UK, there are hundreds of thousands of people making a difference where it’s needed most, people whose words, deeds, and actions make the world a better place. Room to Reward enables registered charities to give something back to these inspirational individuals with a well-earned break at no cost to themselves.
Room to Reward partners with hotels across the UK who donate their anticipated, unsold rooms to the scheme. Charities are then invited to nominate their Hidden Heroes for a 1-2 night, bed and breakfast, complimentary break to enjoy with a friend/loved one.
Hotels throughout the country, as well as properties in Europe, have joined the initiative, helping to say ‘thank you’ to society’s Hidden Heroes and celebrating the difference they make.
