First Aid TrainingFree to SO Members

Last Updated: Fri 12 Oct 2018

As a club we would like to increase the coverage of first aid assistance at our events: both to increase the likelihood of a qualified first aider being present should the need arise at a small local event where the formal provision is just 'first aid kit at download’ and also to make it easier to create a roster of club first aiders for National/Regional events whilst still ensuring everyone gets their own run.

0900hrs – 1600hrs Saturday 17th November 2018

Colgate Village Hall (1, Vicarage Close, Colgate, Horsham, RH12 4BB)

We are able to offer a first aid course to SO members completely free of charge; the club will pay for your certificate and first aid manual.
