St. John Ambulance is looking for Coventry volunteers

First aiders in Coventry are being sought after by the charity St. John Ambulance who are looking for new volunteers.

“No one should die because they needed first aid and didn’t get it,” the charity’s area manager, John Downey said.

“We teach people first aid so they can be the difference between life and death, and you can help us do this.”

First aid volunteers would be trained to a high standard, providing first aid treatments to charity-covered events in the area both regionally and nationally.

St. John Ambulance Coventry volunteers attend events such as Godiva Festival, Earlsdon Festival, events that take place in Coventry Cathedral, family fun days and marathons alike.

Recently, the charity were on hand for first aid at Coventry University’s Students’ Union’s Summer Ball which took place in the cathedral ruins on the weekend OF Saturday 13 May.

“No previous training in first aid 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,” Downey added.

Adult volunteers meet on Tuesday at Holbrooks, Wednesday at Kenilworth Three Spires and City of Coventry, and Friday at Allesley Jaguar.

The deadline for applying to be a first aid volunteer looks to be the first Sunday of June with interviews on Saturday 24 June.
