Barnsley Sea Cadets: providing lifesaving training

Providing first aid can save lives, so we were keen to assist Barnsley Sea Cadets with their first aid training course.

By donating £703, the Sea Cadets have been able to purchase new first aid equipment and stationery to aid the provision of their course. The resulting formal qualification is workplace recognised - a great asset for the cadets.

Sea Cadets provide young people in Barnsley with adventure, education and support by offering training in different skills which can help them grow in confidence and gain employment. They are currently working with around 40 10-18 year olds and their families, often from unsettled backgrounds.

Previously, one of the Sea students who was already first aid trained through the programme was able to put her skills into action after coming across a traffic collision where a man was knocked off his bike by a car. The student had been taught the LIONEL method of first aid with the cadets, so called an ambulance and helped the man involved until emergency services arrived.
