Uist First Responders are gauging interest for recruitment events they plan later this month.

The local group will be joined by a community officer from the national organisation and is planning at least one recruitment event in Benbecula and another in South Uist.

In advance of the planned dates - Monday, November 28 and Tuesday, November 29 - the Uist group would like to hear from anyone interested in attending.

The Uist First Responders are a non-profit community organisation that volunteers to attend medical emergencies while an ambulance is on its way. Volunteers are fully trained in a wide range of emergency skills.

They can be contacted via their Facebook page.
