First aid can be the difference between life and death. As the UK's leading first aid charity, St John Ambulance want to teach everyone these simple, life saving skills.
Sussex LINKS is the student unit of St John Ambulance at the University of Sussex. We provide training for members, enabling them to go out on public duty at events on campus, in Brighton and around the UK. We cover a wide range of events from charity fun runs to AMEX stadium football matches, Brighton Dome concerts, Lewes Bonfire and Brighton Pride. Volunteering with us is a brilliant way to support your community while enjoying the atmosphere at these exciting events, having fun with and learning from your colleagues.
Each week a meeting is held where members can share, consolidate and practise their first aid skills. We also organise social events for members to get to know each other and local St John Ambulance units. This year, we look forward to welcoming new members, getting more people involved in each event and providing more opportunities for members to socialise.
If you are interested in joining Sussex LINKS, please email Daniel, our society lead and unit manager (email@example.com), or contact us via our Facebook group. Alternatively, come along to one of our meetings on Tuesdays in Fulton 114, 6-7pm (new members), 7pm-8pm (exisiting members). We do have a mailing list, please email Daniel and ask to be added to it.
If you are not a student at the University of Sussex but would like to get involved with St John Ambulance, please visit their website for more information about first aid courses and volunteering.
