Calling all first aiders

A CHARITY dedicated to teaching first aid skills is relaunching its Hadleigh division.

St John Ambulance, the country’s leading first aid organisation, is looking for new members ahead of its first meeting.

Divison officer Alex Rose said anyone who is over 18 and is interested in playing a vital role in the community is welcome to join.

“We’re committed to making a difference in Hadleigh by re-establishing the division, teaching first aid skills and providing a great opportunity for members of the community to learn some life skills,” he said.

“Incredibly, 150,000 people die every year from a lack of first aid, and training our youngsters is a vital element in our commitment to ensuring everyone who needs first aid should receive it.”

The division’s first meeting will be held at 1-2 Monastery Park in Aldham Road on March 28 at 7.45pm.
