Important update: stopping of face-to-face fundraising

Thank you for supporting St John Ambulance!

As restrictions are placed on the country again, face-to-face fundraising will be halted till further notice in 2021. We are closely monitoring the situation going forward.

As a clinically-led organisation we have worked hard to ensure this activity will be undertaken sensitively, safely and responsibly, with extra measures in place to protect everyone’s health when we are able to do so. 


About face-to-face fundraising

As a charity, face-to-face fundraising is very important to us, because regular donations mean we can plan for the future more effectively.

We use a professional fundraising agency, like many other charities, to help us raise the most funds we can. For over 20 years, we have been fundraising door-to-door with Wesser Ltd, a well-established family run business that has raised over £62 million from our loyal door-to-door supporters across the country. Wesser Ltd are subject to regular audits to ensure the highest level of service is provided.

All door-to-door fundraisers wear a St John Ambulance branded t-shirt, body warmer, or coat, and carry a professional ID badge with all legally-required details. They go from door-to-door, talking to people about our work and asking them to consider supporting us by giving a regular donation by direct debit.

Wesser Ltd have recruited over 350,000 supporters for St John Ambulance through speaking to our door-to-door fundraisers. We continue to increase awareness of first aid and support for our work through our door-to-door activity, which in turn means we can save more lives across the UK.
