St John Ambulance volunteer Courtney Bishop named top cadet in region

Ledbury Reporter: Courtney Bishop. Courtney Bishop.

A HEREFORD teenager has been named as the South District Cadet of the Year,

Courtney Bishop, from Holmer, will represent fellow cadets in the Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Warwickshire region throughout St John Ambulance events this year.

In order to win the role, the 15-year-old, who studies at Whitecross High School, had to complete a first aid challenge to demonstrate her life-saving abilities, take part in a team building exercise and give a presentation.

‘The best part about St John Ambulance is that you always meet new people, always have new opportunities and you also get new achievements to accomplish," said Courtney.

"If someone needs your help, you will know what to do because you have got the experience to do so.

‘I am looking forward to meeting new people and having the chance to compete with them."
