CWLs pass First Aid with flying colours at Rathfern!


A group of enthusiastic Community Walk Leaders attended a recent Red Cross training day at Rathfern Social Activity Centre as part of their Walking In Your Community training.

This half day course trained these CWLs in Emergency Life Support which equipped them with the vital skills needed to lead safe walks when out and about in their local area.

Nicola Cully, Marketing Officer from Walking In Your Community commented "It was great to see so many people attend this Red Cross First Aid course at Ratherfern Social Activity Centre. It is a highly enjoyable and relaxed day and Community Walk Leaders leave feeling confident and better equipped to lead Community Walks."

Walking In Your Community in conjunction with the Red Cross will be running a number of First Aid courses throughout the year. To find out more please visit the Events and Training section of the Walking In Your Community website, email or call 028 903 03930.
