First Aid Festival-Gladstonebury

Festival First Aid from Redrow

Redrow raced to the aid of Scout Event held in Flintshire by providing funding for first aid equipment for their Gladstonebury Festival.

Some 200 Explorer Scouts attended the Scout event which took place at the Flintshire Scout Activity Centre.

The first aid area for the event was well equipped thanks to Flintshire-based Redrow Homes who donated signs so that festival goers in need of help know where to go, plus first aid kits to cater for up to 100 people and two bum-bag first aid kits.

Event first aider and Explorer Scout with 1st Connah’s Quay Scout Group Kris said: “The Gladstonebury event involved places for 200 young people from across the Clwyd Area, from Flintshire, Wrexham, Llangollen & Vale of Clwyd Districts plus adult volunteers to help support this fantastic event. Thanks to support from Redrow we were able to ensure that those who required medical help during the festival received the best care we could offer.”
