St John Volunteers work long hours and not always in the

ideal situation or weather conditions, but despite this

they

continue to support the community’ said

Jo Bell, St John

Executive Manager Volunteer Services.


Over the past year, the South Australian St John Volunteers

have been on duty at the Football, Clipsal 500, Tour down

Under, Big Day Out, and the City to Bay Fun Run to name just a

few of the events that we attend,

and earlier this

year St

John  supported CFS Volunteers during the Victorian bushfires.  


‘As an organisation we are extremely fortunate to have so many

dedicated, committed and enthusiastic volunteers who engage in

a range of activities from First Aid Services, Cadets,

Training, Community Care Programs, The St John Band,

Logistics, and Communications, to name a few.’

continued Ms

Bell.
