End of Year Celebration and Awards Night 2021

On Wednsday 1 December 2021, St John Ambulance ACT held their annual End of Year Celebration and Awards Night. Attended by local Members of the order, volunteers, the St John ACT Board members and staff in order to collectively show our gratitude towards everyone who goes above and beyond on behalf of St John Ambulance ACT. We were honoured to welcome the St John Australia National Office team too.

A message from the Chair

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their efforts throughout 2021, another year which presented St John ACT, the community we serve, the nation and indeed the rest of the world with unprecedented challenges.

Whilst most of us are looking towards the new year, reconnecting with family and friends, and enjoying the easing of restrictions, it is important to acknowledge our collective efforts and reflect on what we have achieved.

The success of our organisation is built on the efforts of our members, volunteers and staff and we have overcome new obstacles, created new opportunities such as partnering with ACT Health and achieved successes that have set us up for a smooth transition into 2022.

We are hopeful about the opportunities ahead, across the broad range of services we offer, to respond to changing community and client needs and wants. The people in this organisation continue to show great leadership and commitment to the community.

I acknowledge and thank my fellow Board members and express gratitude to all our volunteers and staff for their continued passion, dedication and willingness to adapt in uncertain times. I look forward to formally recognising the achievements of those who delivered extraordinary efforts throughout the year.
