Scheme helps St John

Manawatu Guardian - - FROM THE EDITOR -

There is al­ways a call­out and the St John Am­bu­lance of­fi­cers are ready for ac­tion.

Palmer­ston North Area Com­mit­tee mem­ber Brian Crothers was on hand to thank the city for their gen­eros­ity dur­ing the April an­nual ap­peal which helps to run the am­bu­lance ser­vice and the many com­mu­nity ser­vices it has to of­fer.

St John also has a Sup­porter Scheme where you pay a small an­nual sub­scrip­tion and re­ceive free emer­gency am­bu­lance cover for you and your fam­ily.

Brian said the an­nual sub­scrip­tion price was less than a sin­gle emer­gency am­bu­lance part-charge.

“Any ex­cess funds from the sub­scrip­tions helps to buy new equip­ment and ve­hi­cles for the am­bu­lance ser­vice and pro­vide the es­sen­tial ser­vices to the com­mu­nity.”

Those ser­vices in­clude run­ning the am­bu­lance ser­vice, the Health Shut­tles, Friends of the Emer­gency Depart­ment, ASB St John in Schools, Car­ing Caller and the St John Youth pro­gramme.
