National First Aid Competition 2017

19th May 2017

The National First Aid Competition took place on Sunday 14th May at Cardiff City Football Stadium.

The competition saw 23 teams and 58 members compete from age 5 and upwards. The competitors from across Wales had already won their Divisional and County rounds and were competing to become the Welsh champions.

This year's competition was in memory of Ruth Bryant who sadly passed away earlier this year. Ruth, along with her team mate, Sharon Thomas, were the current reigning adult team champions in 2016.

You can see more pictures from the event on our Facebook page.
