St John Ambulance returns to The Royal Cornwall Show
During the first weekend of June, more
than 80 SJA volunteers returned to the biggest
agriculture show in the UK, The Royal Cornwall Show.
Volunteers came from all over the region
and were joined by visiting volunteers from London and Yorkshire.
176 patients were treated with six people needing to be taken to
A visit from Her Royal Highness the Countess of Wessex brought some
excitement to the day. Mary Walters was one of the volunteers who
met her, said:
‘It was an honour to be one of the
volunteers chosen to meet the Countess, she was very friendly and
asked how the day was going and then peered over our shoulders to
the crew making tea and asked for coffee, white, no sugar, which
broke the ice and everyone laughed. All in all it was an experience
I won’t forget.’
In a newly signed contract, St John Ambulance will be sole
providers for The Royal Cornwall show for the next three years.
St John Ambulance is always ready to help and The Royal Cornwall
Show is one of the many events across the country where we provide
fully trained and equipped personnel.
