Gallery: A Dinky Doctor summer in the Trinity Centre

This summer the Trinity Centre, Dinky Doctors and Peter Vardy – Vauxhall Aberdeen teamed up together to teach children between the ages of 3 and 12 years old first aid and essential lifesaving skills in a fun and interactive way.

Over 600 people got involved in the launch event on Saturday, 15th June, where we launched the summer Dinky Doctors sessions with a special “first aid” themed flash mob from Wildcat Cardiac Responders followed by first aid demonstrations, a CPR Challenge, face-painting from Kidsize and a special visit the Original 106 team.

During the 4 weeks of sessions, 240 children between the ages of 3 and 12 years old were trained as Dinky Doctors; £2,000 was donated between 2 charities – VSA and Me Too! and 100% of participants enjoyed the session and would recommend it to someone else!

Here’s what some of our Dinky Doctors participants and their parents and carers had to say about the sessions:
