Sunday saw the Highland Wildcats run a First Aid Course, as part of our new Positive Life Pathways project, for its players and volunteers aged between 14-19. The young people on the course were taken through emergency first aid including CPR and bandaging. Players Euan Crawford, Mark Pyper, Ewan Sime, Luke Robinson, Haris Ryalls and Chris Shaw all passed the course along with staff members Davie Grant and Daniel Woodley. These young people now have the skills needed to assess and deal with a first aid situation.
Positive Life Pathways Youth Development Officer, Robbie Paulin, commented, “it was great to see our players and volunteers giving up their time to make our organisation that little bit safer. It was a long day but a well delivered course and the guys stayed focused throughout and picked up a lot!
“Although having these young people qualified in first aid is a great benefit to the Highland Wildcats, the main aim of Positive Life Pathways is to change the lives of the individual. Having a course like this on a CV or having the confidence that something like this brings at a young age is fantastic.”
Positive Life Pathways is supported by The Robertson Trust, The Gannochy Trust, The Garfield Weston Foundation and The Common Good Fund. The First Aid course itself was funded and supported by Merkinch Partnership.
