Organisers behind the St John Ambulance unit in Preston are appealing for new volunteers to step forward and become part of the team.
Marc Murray, St John Ambulance’s Regional HR Manager, said: ‘We’re very keen to hear from local adults who are interested in learning first aid and volunteering at events and in the community.
“We’re a friendly group with a busy year ahead of us and would really like to grow the number of volunteers at the unit in 2018.
“It’s an amazing feeling to know that you can save a life. Why not join us and help St John Ambulance continue its vision of ensuring that no-one should suffer for the lack of trained first aiders?”
New adult volunteers receive training in first aid and are expected to reach a reasonable level of proficiency after six to nine months.
Volunteers from the Preston unit regularly go on duty at a number of different events including matches at Deepdale football stadium.
Volunteers at the unit meet one evening a week at the unit HQ on Garstang Road in Preston.
All volunteers are asked to give a minimum of 60 hours a year and all successful applicants will need to pass an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.
