BAFTA award winning  Secret Life of Boys star, and Y&T student of over 10 years, Reece Buttery is set to do something amazing.

On November 3rd he will be  hosting the live streaming of  The Big First Aid Lesson free of charge across the country.  St John’s Ambulance,the nation’s leading first aid charity, is urging teachers and primary schools to sign up.

Reece was approached by charity where he is a cadet and felt it would be an amazing experience to follow in the footsteps of last years host ITV’s This Morning’s Dr Ranj. Y&T spoke to Reece on the upcoming event.  On its importance he said, ‘First aid can be the difference between life and death and as a St John Ambulance first aider myself, I know the importance of knowing these vital skills to help someone in an emergency.’

On being a student of Y&T for over 10 years and how it has helped prepare him for his various roles, he said, ‘Young and Talented helped me with the confidence and acting side of things, with out Y&T, I would have not been acting or had this opportunity!’

Thanks Reece! We are proud of all your achievements and have loved having you as a student and mentor over the years.

Make sure to get your school to sign up today.
