We are keen to recruit new
volunteer first aiders. We have opportunities for
anyone holding a current First Aid at Work certificate
to get involved, and places for those interested in
training-up. You'll meet people, learn new skills and
have an interesting time (see photos)!
If you live in the
North Hampshire area, and would like to know
more about becoming a volunteer contact me by
or phone 01252-629132 / 07941-980914.
Volunteers need to attend
at least half the Tuesday evening training
sessions to maintain and develop their skills and are
expected when available to cover events of their
choice at weekends.
Without first aid cover
our local fetes, bonfires, triathlons and other
sporting events would be unable to run, so do
something worthwhile by using your skills to give a
little back to the community.
