St John celebrates success in 2007
Dedicated volunteers and staff at St John
Ambulance are celebrating their success last
year with the launch of the annual review and annual
report for 2007.
Roger Chatterton, Chief Commander said:
'2007 was a year in which we really demonstrated what we are made
of. We supported the nation in times of
emergency, in flood-hit areas across the country. We made huge
steps forward with our Youth work, with the launch of the
Youth Strategy at
Mansion House and the Young Carers Project, which is but one of our
expanding list of care and support programmes enabling us to reach
out in local communities.
'A big thank you must go to our volunteers who dedicated a
huge 5,600,000 hours of service in 2007. Their hard work and
generous contribution of their time has been invaluable.'
The celebrations recognise the endless hours of time and effort
that the organisation has given to provide first aid and care to
communities throughout the year.
