Volunteers needed to teach life-saving skills
HUDDERSFIELD’S youngest First Aid enthusiasts are celebrating the relaunch of the St John Ambulance’s Badger programme.
But the town’s Badger Sett, a group of children aged seven and 10, is looking for volunteer leaders to support the children.
The charity’s youngest volunteers learn a range of important life skills, including how to save lives using First Aid, in a friendly and safe environment.
The youngsters do this in a fun and entertaining way.
St John Ambulance’s director of youth and community, Wendy Human, said: “Our Badger programme is now even more fun and engaging for children.
“It teaches our young people life-saving skills, as well as developing them holistically.”
As they progress towards their bronze, silver and Super Badger awards, the children collect certificates and badges to wear on their uniforms.
The awards: Helpful Badger, Eco Badger and Caring Badger are given in recognition of their achievements.
The Badger Sett meets at Moldgreen United Reformed Church on Monday evenings between 6.30pm and 8pm.
