Volunteers from St John Ambulance (SJA) gave life-saving first aid demonstrations to visitors at Royal Windsor Racecourse on Monday.
The SJA stand taught key skills including CPR and how to put someone into the recovery position.
A fundraising collection for SJA also raised £385 at the racecourse in Maidenhead Road.
The charity is campaigning for first aid to be included on the national curriculum and wants more young people to learn the skills that could save lives.
Josephine Crabb, county president for SJA in Berkshire, said: “If first aid is second nature to young people, they’ll have the confidence to use it.
“It’s very easy to learn and is a simple skill, but it has an incredible impact.
“I would like to say thank you to all those who contributed to our fundraising on Monday evening.
"Every penny we raise helps saves lives.”
