Just over a year ago Samantha Hobbs almost lost her mum Mandy when she had a cardiac arrest at their home in Yeovil.
Aged just fourteen at the time, she saved her mum's life using CPR skills she'd learned at the local lifesaving club.
Sam has been campaigning to get other teenagers to learn these skills, and has earned an award from the British Heart Foundation for what it calls her exceptional contribution to improving the UK's heart health.
