Organisers at St John Ambulance are hoping to attract volunteers from the Bridlington area.
Organisers at St John Ambulance are hoping to attract volunteers from the Bridlington area.

The St John Ambulance organisation in East Yorkshire is appealing for new volunteers to step forward to learn how to be the difference between a life lost and a life saved.

St John Ambulance volunteers are a familiar sight at sporting events and concerts in the Bridlington and district area.

New adult volunteers will receive training in first aid and are expected to reach a reasonable level of proficiency after six to nine months.

Once the training has been completed they will have a chance to take their skills out to public gatherings.

Selection and training for these county-wide volunteer opportunities will take place at the charity’s venue in Hull.
