Jo Swinson, local MP for East Dunbartonshire, visited the Strathkelvin Company Cadets in Kirkintilloch on Thursday to observe their St Andrew’s First Aid Training programme.
Aimed at 11- 15 year olds, the programme provides the opportunity for young people to develop their skills in first aid. The programme also gives youngsters the experience of working at a range of events alongside the adult volunteers, providing essential first aid cover.
Commenting, Jo said:
“Being a St Andrew’s First Aid volunteer is an amazing opportunity to meet new people, make friends, attend major events, and most importantly to be part of Scotland’s leading First Aid provider and help save lives.
“I was really impressed by how the cadets sprang into action when presented with all the different emergency scenarios.
“Young people interested in signing up should call 0141 332 4031 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.”
