Our volunteers do much more than simply supplying first aid and ambulance cover at sports events. Over the last four weekends, volunteers from our unit in Raheny have been delivering first aid talks in Fingal Libraries as part of the Bealtaine 2022 Festival. Thank you to all the volunteers who took part in this outreach.
