We're blown away by the support we've received throughout our #ChristmasChallenge18
Community First Responder fundraising campaign over the past week. Thanks to you, we've smashed our match-fund target of £10,000. We're so grateful for each and every donation!
You might not know it, but for 15 years we’ve been running a service for homeless and vulnerably housed people in two Sussex locations. We’re proud to offer an approachable, inclusive service, with mental health support as well as general healthcare and first aid provision for anyone who comes through our doors. Search 'St John Ambulance Homeless Service' to find out more.
We're three days in to our #ChristmasChallenge18
Community First Responder fundraising campaign, and two thirds of the way towards our £10,000 target! Thank you SO much to everyone who has donated so far. Remember, until 12pm on December 4th all donations made via the Big Give platform are being match-funded, so for the next few days only you can make one donation but have twice the impact. Please help us spread the word! Link in bio.
Young people from across St John Ambulance England and Wales came together to meet with HRH The Princess Royal at our Young Achievers Reception last Wednesday, where we celebrated their outstanding hard work and commitment to helping others. Well done all. 🏆

This week our Homeless Service in Brighton received a generous donation of £5,000 from the wonderful Pebble Trust @thepebbletrust.
This money will help us continue to serve the homeless community in Brighton, and we're extremely grateful for the much-needed support!
It was an honour for us to take part in the #LordMayorsShow
on Saturday! Did you spot us?
15-year-old Molly Harris woke up in the middle of the night to shouting. She ran into her parents’ bedroom and found her step-dad, Peter, had stopped breathing. He had suffered a cardiac arrest.
Molly’s first aid training meant she knew what to do: an ambulance was called and she immediately began CPR.
Molly saved her step-dad’s life, and this year she was rightly named as one of our 2018 Young Heroes at the Everyday Heroes Awards. We’re so proud of you, Molly! #MyEverydayHero

15-yr-old Charlotte, an incredible Cadet of ours from Kent, saved her dad's life when she correctly recognised his symptoms of potentially fatal sepsis, and insisted an ambulance be called. The hospital later said it was thanks to Charlotte’s knowledge and confidence that her dad was still alive. Charlotte was a recipient of our Guy Evans Young Hero award last month – isn’t she awesome?! #MyEverydayHero
The thought of stepping in to help someone having a cardiac arrest is, for many people, extremely daunting.
The shocking reality is that only one in 10 people will currently survive an out of hospital cardiac arrest in the UK, but we firmly believe that if more people were trained and confident in giving CPR, this statistic would improve.
Today is World #RestartAHeart
Day, and our goal is to help as many people as possible feel more confident to act when needed. Full first aid guidance for cardiac arrests please head to our website using the link in our bio. #RestartAHeartDay
