Packed and ready to go – Rosemary Butler is seen off by husband Bishop Paul.
Rosemary Butler, the Bishop of Durham’s wife, is to serve as a first aider during the forthcoming Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. She has been a first aider for many years, having initially trained as a nurse and a midwife, and was among the volunteers carrying out first aid duties at the London 2012 Olympics and the Paralympics that followed. During the Glasgow games, she will be part of the team of volunteers (known as Clydesiders) who administer to the medical needs of spectators at Hampden Park, which will host the athletics events. Rosemary said: “I am looking forward to being able to make use of my skills. It is also something to be able to say of big events like this that ‘I was there’.”
