Young medics are taking to Morrissons supermarket today and Saturday to raise funds for their voluntary work and local group.

Members of the St John Ambulance Wales in Newtown will be at the store filling shoppers bags in turn for a donation to help raise funds.

Leader, Ceri-Le Galvin, said: “We currently have 24 devoted cadets who attend weekly to train in first aid. Our cadets attend every Tuesday and receive life saving training in first aid, this training is then something that they can use within the community. 

“Unlike many 'after school clubs' our cadets will attend real life duties and will help real life patients. They will have the knowledge and skills to be able to save a life, something that is so priceless. To go onto duties with the adult members of St John all the cadets must have uniform, which of course comes at a price. As we are a charity we work hard to fundraise for things like this.”

The cadets will also be carrying out scenarios  Ceri-Lee added: “We will also be completing scenarios around the store to show the public exactly what it is our cadets can do. They will be showing skills such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), bandaging, how to save someone who is choking and more.”

“Without the help of Morrisons and them allowing us into their store, our cadets would not have the chance to show their skills and more importantly would not have the chance to raise the much needed funds for their uniforms.”
