Ask me why I'm protecting people from COVID-19

Grace is one of the new volunteers to St John Ambulance. In 2020 we really needed extra help, in order to assist the NHS with healthcare in the Covid-19 pandemic. Along with thousands of others, Grace answered the call and stepped forward. You can see the story of how she played her part in preventing thousands more people from catching Covid, by clicking play on the video above.

The St John Ambulance Ask Me campaign highlights the amazing work our charity does. In 2020, we provided over 250,000 hours of volunteer support to the NHS, on ambulances, in communities and caring for Covid-19 patients in hospitals and this year we have partnered with the NHS in vaccinating the nation. In normal years, our thousands of volunteers deliver vital first aid in communities and public events across the nation.

We are also the nation's leading first aid training organisation, helping members of the public gain the skills that help them save lives where they live and work. And our employed ambulance crews are in action, day-in, day-out delivering vital patient transport and acting as back up to the NHS ambulance service.

Next year marks our 100th anniversary of training young people, through our Cadet programme, in essential first aid skills, giving them the confidence to save lives.

Please help us keep our nation healthy, by donating today. Or Get Involved to see the many other ways you could help first aid save lives.
