First Aid

September 2018 Newsletter

The British Red Cross is offering free two hour first aid sessions to people at greater risk of injury from slips, trips and falls. These sessions are designed to give people greater confidence by stripping out all technical and clinical language, leaving just basic, common sense skills that people can use when a loved one, friend or complete stranger is in need of help.

The sessions are free, held at your usual venue and we are completely flexible with time and dates. We have delivered to several U3A groups over the last few years and have had great feedback, so if you would like us to come out to your group please don’t hesitate to contact me.
