Volunteers' 2012 efforts recognised at Palace reception
Representatives from St John Ambulance
(SJA) attended St James’s Palace on 29 May in celebration of
The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Volunteering Award
2012, which was received by SJA last year.
A proud achievement
The award was a formal recognition of volunteers’
contribution to the Diamond Jubilee celebrations
and the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2012. Ann
Cable, District Manager in London, and Robert Ashton, District
Manager in the South West, were key to SJA’s first aid delivery
during 2012 and were both part of SJA’s 2012 Coordination Group.
They were selected to represent SJA at the Palace reception.
Earlier this year, a commemorative crystal and copy of the award
certificate signed by The Queen were presented to each region of St
John Ambulance for display.
Delivering essential first aid
‘Volunteers worked tirelessly throughout 2012, providing first
aid to those who needed it at Jubilee and Olympic and Paralympic
celebrations. It’s marvellous that their contribution has been
recognised by Her Majesty.’ said Head of Volunteering, Chris
