High Sheriff picks up First Aid tips at British Red Cross visit
HIGH Sheriff of Cambridgeshire Richard Barnwell learned some lifesaving First Aid tips on a visit to Wisbech to lend his support to the Red Cross.
“Mr Barnwell has been a long-time supporter of the British Red Cross and this visit signals his intention to stay involved in the humanitarian charity,” a spokesman for the organisation said.
During his visit he learned about the Red Cross’ community services for people in crisis in the UK, as well as some First Aid tuition with qualified trainers.
“I have long been a supporter of the British Red Cross, and during my year as High Sheriff I have been delighted to support them throughout the county,” Mr Barnwell said.
Knowing what to do in an emergency can save lives and I will continue to champion first aid learning when I step down from office.”
