News: Be All It Takes in 2019

We want pupils across Wales to know that whoever they are, wherever they are and whatever they look like, they could make a difference in an emergency situation.

Our Be All it Takes campaign encourages schools to get involved and raise funds which could help us teach first aid to more people across Wales, and awareness of the fact that with the right skills, anyone could help save a life.

We’re looking for schools to take part and spread the word that you don’t need to wear a uniform to save a life by holding a non-uniform day in aid of St John Cymru; Wales’ leading first aid charity.

Donations will help us make a difference to more people across Wales, by teaching them the skills they need to potentially save a life. This includes children and young people who learn through our Badger and Cadet programmes and free first aid training which we provide in Welsh schools.

Samantha Coles St John Cymru Appeal Manager said:

"We’re working with schools to highlight that you don’t need to wear a uniform to save a life.

“People from across Wales, including children and young people, are already being all it takes, saving lives by using first aid in an emergency situation.

“Just £80 could give one of our Cadets the skills they need to become a peer trainer, meaning they can teach first aid to other young people and just £180 could enable us to teach a class of school children free first aid training

“You donation really does help us make a difference,”

Schools will get the full support of our fundraising team and will help you every step of the way. To find out how you can get involved and for a whole host of ‘fun-draising’ hints, tips and ideas on how your school can ‘Be All it Takes’ click here.
