Red Badged first Aiders! For 1360 Cadets

The awards just keep coming in for cadets at 1360 (Stapleford and Sandiacre) Squadron!

The squadron have had a cracking year so far when it comes to competing in sports or sending cadets on their Duke of Edinburgh’s! But now we’ve got something else to show off, 5 cadets received their red first aid badgers! Sergeant Matthew Carre (17), Corporal Jade Cox (14) Corporal Jake Harlow (17), Corporal Shannon Conway (15) and Cadet Zach Davies (16) were all sent on a weekend course to learn basic first aid.

They were taught how to deal with different situations such as, an unconscious person, bleeding wound they are also taught how to perform CPR. First aid is an important skill to have as one day hopefully not but one of these cadets could be saving a life.

We are so proud of all out cadets, it’s great to see them giving their weekends up to learn a useful skill. Well done.
