John cadets scoop trophy wins in regional first aid competition
of Highbridge and Burnham St John Ambulance Cadets are celebrating
this week winning two trophies at the weekend.
(July 17th), the team of cadets competed in the South
West Regional First Aid competitions in Gloucester.
14 year-old Hannah Dowell, pictured, was placed first in the
individual First Aid section, much to her delight and her team.
In the overall team competition, the results were very close
with just four marks in it and the group was awarded second place
behind a team from Bristol.
The team coped well with some difficult scenarios, including
a car accident and a heart attack.
