Apologies for the radio silence; we've all been busy with projects and coursework. We've still managed to get up to some cool first aid stuff though! Recently we've had a guest clinician talk from London's Air Ambulance, had unit members covering events at Arsenal and Chelsea, got a cool tour of an ambulance from our UM, Wout and been upskilling and training within SJA.

Tomorrow is our AGM, and if you're interested in helping to manage and run similar cool events next year, consider running for a committee position. The link to submit your manifesto is available from our newsletter email, and if you have any questions drop us a message or email. If not you should still come along to vote (and get some free pizza :) )

Last week was Student Volunteering Week, and we'd thought we should say a massive thank you to all our brilliant student volunteers that keep the society and the unit running! From running our weekly training sessions to helping deliver operational hours on behalf of SJA, a massive thank you to everyone for your efforts.

In other news, our regular session is running tomorrow as usual, details in post. As a reminder we'll have our AGM on the 12th of March, so if you're interested in a committee position come along tomorrow to ask our committee any questions you have!

Some recent duty photos from our unit members that were too cool not to share!

1: During a recent rest break on an ambulance shift, Wout saw a rainbow and took this very cool photo
2: At an event in Guildhall Anant snapped a few sneaky shots just before the guests turned up
3: Wout took Cyril the Squirrel on a trip to the Isle of Wight to support the IoW NHS trust.

We hope everyone is enjoying their Christmas break so far and we'll see everyone after exams! First session in the new year will be 23rd of Jan

Hello everyone! We are having a sponsored walk on JULY 3rd. We will start at Twickenham, the home of England rugby and end at Lord’s cricket ground, the home of English cricket, going past Chelsea, QPR and Imperial. The walk will be 25km(16 miles) and take around 5 hours.

Money raised through this event is going directly to St John Ambulance. St John Ambulance is a charity that has been saving lives and keeping communities safe by providing first aid services and delivering vaccinations against COVID-19. Your support makes a difference ranging from providing bandages for urgently treating a wound to training a new volunteer who will save more lives.

Our fundraising link is : https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/imperial-college-first-aid-society. Be our sponsors and help us reach our £1000 goal to support the work of our volunteers!

Our walk is open to all. No entrance fee is needed. If you are interested in participating and spread the page to more people, feel free to contact us via our email: [email protected] or DM us!

Thank you so much for your love and support!

We are all super excited for the year ahead and can't wait to meet up with all of our new and current members in October!!

🔦 Introducing CSP Spotlight ... from now until October, twice a week we'll be introducing you to some of the incredible clubs, societies and projects you can get involved with! Follow us on Instagram/Twitter too () to make sure you catch all of our different spotlight posts and takeovers! 👀

For today's Facebook CSP Spotlight 🔦 we're introducing you to Imperial College First Aid Society! 🩹

This brilliant lot meet every Tuesday to learn about first aid (a life-saving skill that’s great for everyone to know!). However, their club is so much more than a simple first aid course 😊

After every session, they hit up h-bar for a well-deserved pint 🍺 and they also have plenty of other socials 👍

If you want to practice your newly learned skills in real life and meet students from other universities, then through First Aid Society you can also join St John Ambulance 🚑 to provide first aid support at events such as Wimbledon, Premier League football games and concerts!
