Volunteer life savers are needed to join the St John Ambulance’s Chatteris unit with a chance of helping out at music festivals like V.

Event services acting unit manager Derek Oliver said: “We have a busy summer ahead of us and are looking for volunteers who wish to become trained first aiders.

“We are appealing for people to deliver this vital skill in the community and at events in the local area.

“There may also be opportunities to progress within the organisation and learn other new skills.

“Anyone interested does not need any prior first aid experience as we will teach them to be the difference between a life lost and a life saved in the space of a few months.”

The unit meets on Thursdays between 7.30pm and 9.30pm at the St John Ambulance building, Eastwood, off Wood Street in the town.
