‘As a first aid volunteer you will be trained to a high standard to provide first aid treatment to patients at events covered by St John Ambulance in the community, at concerts, sports events etc. at local, regional and national level.

‘No previous training is required – it will all be provided – we just look for a desire to help people and the readiness to deal with situations that can be distressing.’
