THE volunteers at the ‘Inspired’ centre in Friary Lane received certificates on Tuesday after competing a first aid course during August.

“We completed the course funded by Kerry Respite Care in August,” said volunteer Yvonne O’Brien.

“It was for the volunteers and support workers – who are all family carers – run over three days. It was a very useful course and we’ve been able to put it into practices here in Inspired. It’s of paramount importance that anyone working in a centre would have an occupational first aid experience,” said Yvonne.

The certificates were presented by Sharon Keane from Kerry Respite Care.
