Community Walk Leaders Complete First Aid Certificate


On Thursday 14th January 2016 a group of enthusiastic Community Walk Leaders from Ardoyne & Marybone youth clubs attended Red Cross first aid training 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.

Claire Overend, Active Clubs Coordinatior for Walking In Your Community commented "It was great to see so many attend this Red Cross First Aid course in Belfast. 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.
