YOUNG first aiders are celebrating the relaunch of St John Ambulance’s Badger programme.

The Ascot and Bracknell Badger Sett is a group of children aged between seven and 10, and the group is now on the lookout for new volunteer leaders to support the children, during their weekly meetings.

District Youth Lead, Nathan Jones, said: “We are not asking people to give huge amounts of their time – just one evening a week can make so much of a difference.

“Learning first aid is an important thing at any time of life but teaching children equips them to be the difference between a life lost and a life saved from a young age.

“It also builds their confidence, teaches them new skills and puts something back into the community.”
