Volunteers back at Kassam Stadium
Volunteers in Oxfordshire are pleased to be
back in the Kassam Stadium since the recent flooding – but under
much happier circumstances.
The stadium is back to nomal after being turned into a rest
centre for evacuated residents in the community during the recent
floods, and volunteers who helped are happy to be back doing
their normal duties.
Robin Clare, St John Ambulance Nursing Officer, said: 'All
of our volunteers who helped at the Kassam Stadium are happy to be
back during normal football hours.
We are extremely proud of the work put in to making the Oxford community's stay at the Kassam as comfortable and pain free as possible.

'We are extremely proud of the work put in to making the Oxford
community's stay at the Kassam as comfortable and pain free as
possible. It was a difficult situation for everyone.'
St John Ambulance has been providing first aid at the ground
since it opened in 2001, but also covered matches at Oxford's
previous home the Manor Ground.
Volunteers work with the South Central Ambulance Service and
provide a basic first aid service for the crowd and also a medical
liaison service for pitch injuries.
