Abseil for a £10 donation this Saturday 18 October 2014

This Saturday, our friends at Bibliotheca have organised an abseil from the Peak District’s iconic abseiling venue at Millersdale in aid of Dyslexia Action. A £10 (or more!) donation will give you the opportunity to test yourself descending 65 feet from a disused railway viaduct. The £10 minimum donation is the only thing you’ll pay, so this represents a really good value opportunity to test your mental strength. (Normal price £25 pp).

You can book online here or for more information call Will Sheaff on 07941 645 520.

February first aid courses, now with an added bonus

Wilderness Development’s next first aid courses in Greater Manchester and the Peak District will take place on 20-21 February 2014.

Emergency first aid at work course

Emergency first aid at work course

Come along on the 20 February 2014 to learn vital life-saving skills, should somebody stop breathing or suffer severe bleeding. Attending the one day first aid course will make you eligible for the nationally recognised Emergency First Aid at Work certificate.

You can also attend a second day, leading to the Outdoor First Aid (16hrs) certificate. Suitable for those requiring a higher level of knowledge and operating further from help. This active and practical course is customised to the learners, and is perfect for instructors requiring NGB revalidation.

I thought the course was very clear and well delivered. There was a lot of discussion about first aid areas and topics as a group, which was a lot more interactive than I have experienced on other first aid courses. The tutor did a great job throughout, tailoring the information to our venue.

As an added bonus, all students will receive a money-off voucher from Nomad Travel to spend on clothing or first aid equipment.
