Cadets Sleepover 2015 fundraiser for MNDA

Cadets lose sleep for MNDA.

In the summer term the St John Ambulance cadets from Mountbatten Unit worked on their fundraising badge. They had previously had a talk from Margaret McGovern from The Motor Neurone Disease Association Jersey, who explained what life was like for sufferers of MND.

They decided to fundraise for the Motor Neurone Disease Association Jersey and planned a sponsored stay awake. The group did all of the planning, then were sponsored by friends and family. A night of movies, dancing, games and singing took place along with a cake sale and they managed to raise £278. They presented the cheque to Margaret recently at our Midvale Road Headquarters, who thanked them for their efforts and informed them on how the money may help sufferers of MND.

Congratulations to them on their enthusiasm and teamwork.

National Final Competitions 2015

Congratulations to Mountbatten Badgers from Jersey who came 3rd at the National Final Competitions in Gloucester today.
The team of three competed in an activity section where they had to complete 6 different activities in 6 minutes and a first aid scenario.
Eve Luce (10) Emma Gavey (9) and Sophie Hewitt (8) have had an amazing experience at the event  and we are very proud of their achievement.

Congratulations also to the St Martin Cadet team of George Tidy and Amy Sainter who placed 6th at National Finals. They had individual tests involving an incident inside a bus and someone who had been run over by the bus and their team test involved two casualties at the beach, one had a cardiac arrest and the other had an asthma attack.
We are very proud of them for their hard work.
