One Free First Aid Training Places for Two Charities.

In Autumn 2018, Simon Daniels, a BBC Sound Engineer, used his life saving skills to promote recovery of Glen Hoddle, the BBC TV pundit. Daniel’s First Aid training, confidence, quick thinking, and rapid action changed the outcome for Glen Hoddle. But could you?

First Aid is a life-saving skill and designed to be hands-on. Just eight hours of your time in a fun, relaxed and encouraging environment, will enable you to provide basic first aid whilst you are waiting for help to arrive. 

The Round Table of Rugby (113), are very generously sponsoring two places on a First Aid Course in these potentially life-saving skills. The One Day Emergency First Aid Course is on Friday 15th February  and will be delivered by RAS: Risk Advisory Service, approved NUCO Trainer. The course, which meets HSE’s requirements, is a lively and fun day, making complex medical information digestible. 

To apply for one of the two places, send an email to detailing why you would like to have your place funded by The Round Table of Rugby. Your application should be sent in a covering letter detailing the charity you work for and what your role is, including the name, address of the CEO and Charity Commission number. Please title your email – Application for Round Table of Rugby February 2019. 

 “It is important that all workers including volunteers have access to First Aid equipment and qualified people. The cost to obtain the necessary knowledge and advice can be costly which is why Rugby Round Table are happy to sponsor these places for each course held in Rugby. You never know when you might need First Aid help, but will there be someone close by that knows what to do?

Malcolm Freeman from Rugby Round Table

Nisha Kaduskar the Director of RAS: Risk Advisory Service, says ‘We are delighted to have the Round Table of Rugby on board as sponsors for the two places. It shows the continued commitment of The Round Table of Rugby to the charities and people of Rugby and of the RAS: Risk Advisory Service to deliver training where it creates the biggest impact.’
