Leeds husband and wife team Kate and Matt Ball will pitch for an investment on the BBC One show - joined by four of their six young children during the 12th episode due to air on June 24, 2021 at 9pm.

She set up Mini First Aid from her kitchen table in 2014, running first aid classes for parents and carers in her local area.

Kate saw the potential for growth and together with her husband Matt, franchised the business across the UK.

Mini First Aid now teaches basic and lifesaving first aid to around one thousand adults and children a week.

During the pandemic, Mini First Aid has trained thousands of people online in infection control, to ensure that businesses are COVID safe. In April 2021, Mini First Aid launched their ‘Healthy Minds’ programme, to help children and young people understand how to stay healthy mentally as well as physically.

Kate said: “Mini First Aid provides first aid classes for all the family, so it seemed only fitting that we took some of our own family along with us to the Den.

"Bringing our youngest set of twins was just one step too far though!

"The whole process of appearing on Dragons’ Den was absolutely incredible and we can’t wait to see our episode.

"One thing’s for sure, our kids will be more famous than us!”

Kate and Matt pitched to Sara Davies, Theo Paphitis, Deborah Meaden, Touker Suleyman and Tej Lalvani on the show.
