Marion Sharrock, St John Ambulance Vice President from
‘Since joining St John Ambulance in
1954, I have undertaken many duties including providing
treatment at the Promenade Hospital.
After I joined, I started working towards the Grand Prior Cadet
badge and became the first nursing Cadet in Southport to achieve
In 1963, I was promoted to Cadet Officer and I spent many weeks
taking Cadets to camp or on training or youth hostelling
I also had the honour of being invited to a garden party

years of volunteering.
St John Ambulance is really a way of life for my family. Long
