Jo Swinson MP for East Dunbartonshire paid a visit to Milngavie’s St Andrew’s First Aid volunteers on Thursday to observe their training programme.
The Milngavie branch is a vital first aid service to the local community, as well as providing support at larger venues such as Partick Thistle games, T in the Park and events at Hampden with other groups from Glasgow.
Commenting, Jo said:
“The programme provides the opportunity for young people to develop their skills in first aid and gives them the experience of working at a range of events alongside adult volunteers, providing essential first aid cover.
“With the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 2014 they will need many more volunteers. Young people interested in signing up should call 0141 332 4031 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.”
