St John chips in for WA families

St John Ambulance WA has shown it has the Christmas spirit by collecting hundreds of gifts for WA families.

Staff and volunteers from St John have given presents to the giving tree set up in our state office in Belmont -- and these were transported to the Western Australian Department of Communities today.

St John Chief Executive Officer Tony Ahern said St John was delighted to support families in WA.

“This is just another way our people can show that they are all about ‘For the Service of Humanity’ which is our motto,” he said.

“We have been collecting these presents for children and young people in foster care aged from birth to 17 years and we know the gifts will be very well received.

Mr Ahern said he was proud of his organisation and the willingness of its people to support charities and other good causes.

“Not only do St John people all over the state volunteer to provide vital community services they are often the very same people who rally when there is a cause or need in the community and this gives me great pride,” he said.

“We would also like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very merry and a safe Christmas and a joyous 2018.

“With respect to our staff who are working this Christmas,we hope that they too enjoy a safe and happy holiday.”
