We’re inviting you to ‘Go Green’ on Friday 25th January to support the St John Emergency Ambulance Service.
Schools, businesses, clubs and individuals are encouraged to wear something green and make a donation to help raise money for the new emergency road ambulance appeal.
Chief Officer Ali Marquis said: “I’ve been really impressed by the fundraising efforts for the new ambulance appeal through the year. There have been events, both big and small, which have already helped us raise a significant sum of money for this important project. I’m hoping the Go Green day will be an easy and fun way for people to show their support for the ambulance service and help us raise even more money for our new vehicle.”
Mrs Marquis added: “People can support the Go Green day by putting on a green tie or scarf, or be less subtle and don a green jumper, dress or even a green hat.”
Donations can be made in person at the St John Emergency Ambulance HQ reception at the Rohais or via the Giving.gg fundraising site under the “Emergency Ambulance Appeal” event.
Anyone taking part in the Go Green day on Friday 25th January is asked to send photos of themselves and their friends/colleagues dressed in green to firstname.lastname@example.org for sharing on social media.
An order for the new Emergency Ambulance has now been placed and it is hoped that it will be delivered to Guernsey in the spring 2019. The new state of the art vehicle will be equipped with the latest diagnostic equipment and medical kits, and will provide a mobile medical treatment centre to allow clinicians to give excellent pre-hospital emergency care around the island.
