Red Cross still needs 1,000 more summer volunteers
The Red Cross' call for volunteers has so far led to about 1 thousand people volunteering to become first-aiders, Omroep Gelderland reports. The Red Cross still needs another thousand volunteers to help out at major events in the Netherlands this summer. The first aid volunteers will work at major events such as the Nijmegen Marches. For this event alone the Red Cross needs 600 volunteers every year. Other events such as the Tour de France and Sail are also on the agenda this year. It is not necessary for volunteers to already have a first aid diploma. They will get training from the organization.
