When we think of volunteering, we sometimes think there’s a need to give up big chunks of time to our favourite nominated charities doing extravagant activities and making big gestures ... this doesn’t always have to be the case (but we like it when you do!)
‘Despite what your Mum says, Savlon doesn’t fix everything’, a great opening comment from our trainer Trystan when he went to deliver first aid training to rugby players at Old Illtydians RFC in Cardiff. A light example with a serious message.
Have you ever been faced with the reality of someone being taken seriously ill, at work or in the street, and not knowing what to do? Knowing what to do in the vital few minutes of an emergency could save lives. I recently completed my First Aid at Work course here at St John Wales HQ. Seeing as I was a new member of staff, we thought it would be great for me to get trained up and have an even better knowledge about what St John Wales courses are all about.
