My name is Sherri, and I am the Volunteering Coordinator of Cardiff University Paediatrics Society this year.
I am writing to invite your organisation to join or continue with the UCL/KCL Asthma Awareness Education Programme.
Asthma Aware started in 2015 and it has been a great success for many children in and around Cardiff. Our teaching sessions usually last around 30 minutes to an hour, during which our trained volunteers will teach the children about asthma: how to recognise and help someone who is suffering from a potentially life-threatening asthma attack. It is highly interactive, and we have different talks tailored for both KS1 (5 to 7 year-old) and KS2 (7 to 11 year-old) students. This year, we would like to extend our project to teach as many students in South Wales as possible and we would love your organisation to take part! We hope to arrange group sessions in schools or outside schools where medical/ healthcare students would come over to teach the children.
If this interests you, then please contact us with any dates and timings you have in mind for our volunteers to come and teach. I’ll be starting to recruit volunteers at around October time when more students have settled into the new term. If you have any queries or would like more information about the scheme, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you!
