Making a positive difference for the future was the purpose of a lifesaving course for pupils at St Mary's Primary this week.

Important CPR skills were shown to pupils during the session, which included Thom Williamson from the Largs First Responders.

A St Mary's Primary spokesperson said: "Our class had a brilliant session where they learned how to act safely and helpfully in an emergency requiring CPR. Huge thanks to Lynne, Irene and Thom for coming to share this with us."

CPR stands for cardiopulmonary resuscitation and involves giving chest compressions to a person in cardiac arrest to keep them alive.

The Largs First Responders attend 999 calls in support of the Scottish Ambulance Service, providing vital first aid until paramedics are able to arrive at an emergency.

Though trained by the ambulance service, the group's funding comes from donations made by the public.
