Mini Life-Savers Course @ Marlborough Rugby Football Club
Aug 30 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm
Mini Life-Savers Course @ Marlborough Rugby Football Club | England | United Kingdom

All young people should learn First Aid as a skill for life, starting as soon as they can recognise the number 999. They are often the first person to react when their friend falls off a bike or chokes on a sweet, so knowing basic First Aid is invaluable.

This session is tailored to the age group and is full of practicals to make it fun and memorable:

10.30am-12noon – Mini Life-Savers course for 5-9 year olds £18 (£15 for a sibling)

The cost per person includes handouts, a certificate of attendance and nut-free refreshments.

The courses are taught by Louise Worsley, a qualified, enthusiastic trainer who is an ex-secondary school teacher, a primary school mum and DBS checked. She may also have an assistant for the 5-9 year olds session depending on numbers.

Parents are not required to stay but can use the free car park and walk 10 minutes to the lovely shops and cafes on Marlborough High Street.

For more details

Please contact Louise on 07887 562613 or hello@worsleytraining.co.uk

Private groups for any ages can also be arranged so do get in touch if this date is not suitable.
