It’s been another busy year for everyone involved with St John Cymru-Wales, with volunteers completing an incredible 210,000 hours of voluntary service, worth almost £1.4m if paid at the minimum wage.
We trained nearly 25,000 people in the workplace, at schools and in the local community. And more than 3,000 young people took part in our youth activities as part of our Badger, Cadet and young adult groups.
Throughout this annual review you will see stories that illustrate how our work made a difference to many people at a time of need.
This shows that you can never be sure when you’ll be called on to step up to the mark – which is why we’re urging people to be prepared with our #ItCanHappen campaign, asking them to think about how they would react in an emergency. If more people invest just a little time in learning lifesaving skills, it could make a massive difference.
