Two important announcements
Firstly a new free qualification has been introduced for volunteers to support lifesaving in open water. Open water lifesaving can be both exciting and challenging and RLSS want to help its clubs and branches take the opportunity to enrich the lifesaving experience for all and help save lives….find out more about OWL on the RLSS website.
Secondly next week sees RLSS UK launch its annual #DontDrinkandDrown campaign to warn students of the dangers of mixing water and alcohol. The campaign will run throughout Autumn and Winter at key times, with social media campaigns taking place from 26 September to 4 October. Through the week, RLSS UK will send key messages in a bid to raise awareness and encourage universities, bars and clubs across the UK to hold events and inform their communities through December and January – key times of high alcohol consumption. Please share and retweet the campaign messages.
