MBF: Update from St John Ambulance


What a year it has been! Hopefully you are now relaxing into the countdown to Christmas.

Here at St John things are continuing apace. As you may have heard, we have been invited by NHS England to be a lead partner in its vaccination programme over the coming months and so, alongside our ongoing community support activities, we are also getting thousands of volunteers ready to administer and support COVID-19 vaccinations.

As you know, we held our first ever virtual evening event on 3 rd December to celebrate, with our family of supporters, all our achievements over the past year. We were delighted that Ryan Williams could join us for this special night. A video of the event is now available:

Please do dip in for some incredible stories from our volunteers and a guest appearance from Sir Trevor Macdonald.

As ever, we remain extremely grateful to Mark Master Masons across the country for their continuing support. I know that some local donations have been made over the past few months aiding us in our effort to keep people safe in exceptional times. In addition, our Mark Master Mason vehicles continue to play a vital role in serving our communities, and I am delighted to share with you some of the ways in which these vehicles have enabled us to respond to local needs during the pandemic. I hope that you enjoy reading the report:


- which comes with our sincere thanks for all your support.

From all of us here at St John, our warmest wishes for a peaceful Christmas and a very happy new year.
