Volunteer Training events 2016

On 28th September, we have organised a special day for all our volunteers. It will be held at Cheshire View, Plough Lane, Christleton, and will include information, workshops and of course lunch. We hope that as many as possible of our volunteers will be able to attend and that we will all learn a lot whilst also having fun.

Later in the year we also aim to hold first aid training events for all our volunteers who need to renew their first aid training or would like to learn new skills, and we are looking into providing a programme of training based on the needs of our volunteers.
