Millie Bright

Millie Bright visited her old school, Killamarsh Juniors near Sheffield, to talk to the students about what it's like to play for Chelsea and England. She also saw her mum Nicola too as she's a teaching assistant at the school. I got the chance to have a kick-about too, bringing back great memories of school break-times!

I also did a simple report for our lunch bulletin including some keep-me-ups!

There couldn't be a better example of why it's crucial for as many people as possible to learn first aid skills.
