Beside the seaside for Wroughton Red cross volunteer at Olympics
9:43am Thursday 2nd August 2012 in Sport
A BRITISH Red Cross volunteer from Wroughton will be taking part in a massive first aid operation to ensure top quality medical cover during the Olympics sailing events in Weymouth and Portland.
Emma Nash, 37, who has been a Red Cross volunteer for two years, is joining more than 350 first aiders from across the UK offering their life-saving skills for the 10 Olympic sailing events until August 11.
With an expected 50,000 people visiting Weymouth each day throughout the games, the Red Cross has joined forces with St John Ambulance.
The mother-of-three said: “Weymouth is my favourite place for a day out with the family, so to get an opportunity to volunteer here keeping the crowds safe while watching the sailing is just fabulous.
“I’ll always find time to help people, it’s just what I do and I love it.”
