Please help SJA as they help the NHS and your community

OVER the last few weeks St John Ambulance (SJA) have been saves lives overt the Coronavirus pandemic. They have been deploying teams of volunteers to UK Hospital Emergency Departments and the charity's Ambulances and highly trained crews are being put at the health service's disposal. As England's Auxiliary Ambulance Service, St John Ambulance has been helping the NHS by transporting patients and are currently responding to 999 calls, supporting the NHS Ambulance crews. Plus many of the volunteers are also working in the UK's Nightingale Hospitals and supporting the NHS in other ways.

A SJA crew member working out of from Liverpool, on the COVID19 support for NWAS, Ian Gaynor (pictured above) who is from the Isle of Man, has sent us this poem that he has written, over his rest time, between deployments:-

"Am working away in Liverpool today,
4 days on and 4 days away,
12 hours shifts is what we do,
Out on the Ambulance, keeping everyone safe too.

The NHS is who we assist.
Picking up patients so they are not missed.

Our St. John family are working to please.
Helping where we can to put the NHS at ease.

The flow of patients is constant and long.
We try to cheer them as we go along.

It is hard work for us at the front but the sisters and nurses are bearing the brunt.

I see tired and weary faces all round,
But never a moan or anyone being down.

We all appreciate the public decry...
The waves and the cheers as the Ambulances pass by.

We hope in the future this thing goes away.
To leave us once and for all we pray.

We look to the future and positive too.
When things get better for all of you.

But when it's over and things are done.
Remember the people and all at St John."

Please support the vital work St John Ambulance are doing now and every day of the year.

"We are working closely with NHS England and the National Ambulance Strategic Advisor on how we can support the health service during the COVID-19 Pandemic. The need for our work has never been more relevant or urgent than now, but we need your help. As we face the extraordinary demands of this health emergency, our resources are stretched like never before. Please donate via:- SJA.Org.UK/Donate and help us to help the NHS and your community."
said St John Ambulance's Ambulance and Community Response Director, Craig Harman.
