ST JOHN Ambulance is seeking volunteers to join its team as a first aider.

The Oakwell Unit for St John Ambulance covers numerous events such as Barnsley FC match days, local galas and events and organisers are looking for volunteers to join the team.

Arran Mccallum, unit manager at the Oakwell unit, said: “First aid is so useful and important. Knowing that to do in an emergency can be the difference between a life lost and a life saved. We would love more volunteers to help us as a charity and assist us on events that we cover.

“No previous training is required and full uniform will be provided. We appreciate our volunteers and we would love more to come along and help us as a charity to go out and continue our lifesaving care we deliver to Barnsley and the surrounding area.”

If you are interested in volunteering for St John’s email for more information. The closing date is August 23.
