May has been a month of celebrations! With National Volunteer Week and the Northern Territory Road Safety Week. We held our 3rd Biennial Charity Golf Day as well as the Investiture & Save a Life Award. We also acknowledge the great work of Lesley King who has completed 40 years of Volunteer service with St John in the Northern Territory.
This month we commend Tiani Henri, 19, who received a “Bystander First Aid Award” for her attempts to save the life of a man who suffered a heart attack while climbing Mount Gillen. We participated in a Major Crash Recovery Demonstration in Alice Springs and nominations for the Paramedic of the Year Awards are now open!
This month we say thank you to all the St John Ambulance staff and volunteers who have helped saved the lives of 123 people by donating to the Red Cross Blood service this past year. We participated in the ABC's 70th Birthday celebrations and a reminder that sponsorship spaces for the 2017 Golf Day are filling up fast!
