St John volunteers thankful for generous donation

The Kiama Combined Division of St John Ambulance NSW has thanked Kiama Leagues Club for a generous donation of $2000 that will help purchase new first aid manikins.

Divisional Superintendent Paul Houghton said he was delighted with the support shown by the local Club.

“We are so grateful to the Kiama Leagues Club for their kind contribution. Their generosity means we can train more volunteers in administering CPR to keep our local community safe,” Mr Houghton said.

“Our St John volunteers attend local events such as the Albion Park Show, Kiama Show, Robertson Show and various sporting events like Netball and AFL in the region.

“As a charitable organisation, we rely on the support of the local community to make sure that we will continue to be there to provide first aid services at these events.”

The Kiama Leagues Club general manager, Jesse O’Brian, said “The Board of Directors on behalf of the Kiama Leagues Club are proud to support St John Ambulance NSW with their training equipment upgrade within the Kiama Division.”

“The Board acknowledge all the hard work St John put in to supporting the local community, especially their support of local sports and community events.”
