ST John Ambulance is appealing for new volunteers for their Hawkwell and Hockley unit.

Based in Rochehall Way, Rochford, meets on Tuesdays from 8pm to 10pm and has nearly 20 active adult volunteers, as well as thriving Cadet and Badger groups.

Unit manager Amanda Bradley want to hear from adult volunteers who want to receive full first aid training, leading to them working with the charity at events.

The unit provide first aid cover at a number of different types of event including school fêtes, bonfire nights, cross country races and much more.

Ms Bradley said: “There's nothing quite like knowing that you have the skills to save someone and be the difference between a life lost and a life saved.”

“There's nothing quite like knowing that you have the skills to save someone and be the difference between a life lost and a life saved.

“The Hawkwell and Hockley unit has a busy few months ahead of it so we're keen to hear from local people who can join us and help out.

“As most of the events we cover are at weekends this works very well for people who have weekday jobs.”

According to their website they "are the largest unit of St John Ambulance in Essex with around 80 adults" and the news items says they "have nearly 20 members". Makes you wonder what's gone wrong to lose 75% of their members.
