Safety Volunteers for Lee Valley

Dear All please see the message below, if you have WW safety and Rescue training and would like to volunteer please contact Daniel 



Hi All,

Unfortunately British Canoeing have lost the voluntary safety cover which we had access too over the Winter period for the LV Legacy sessions and we are struggling to add safety cover from the Centre for the upcoming Legacy dates.

Is there anybody who would be available on the below days who has the necessary experience/qualifications who would be willing to provide bank side safety cover for a free Legacy session? Please contact myself (daniel.thompson@britishcanoeing.org.uk) if you are able to assist and/or would like to book onto any future LV Legacy sessions.
