Health and Social Services Minister Lesley Griffiths AM has praised St John Wales’ state-of-the-art training centre in Wrexham after officially launching the organisation’s promotional film there last week.
Ms Griffiths AM was given a tour of the building and met with St John Wales Badgers and Cadets before launching the DVD which will be used a recruitment tool for first aid charity.
She said: “I was very pleased to see the obvious enthusiasm and commitment of all involved at St John Cymru Wales and the DVD will undoubtedly assist in showcasing the range of opportunities available to young people at the charity. I was also impressed with the Wrexham training facility which is clearly a multi-faceted asset to all who use it.”
St John Wales is expanding its training and charitable activity in the region and has recently increased the number of trainers at the centre, located in the Yale Business Village, to meet the needs of Wrexham and the surrounding area.
The promotional film will be distributed to schools, colleges and other voluntary organisations and is available to view on YouTube at www.youtube.com/stjohnwales
