First aid fundraising starts

St John Ambulance will be asking people in Erewash to become a supporter of the charity in the coming months as it launches its latest door-to-door fundraising campaign.

A team of fundraisers will be calling house to house from May 14.

They will be asking local residents to support the work of St John Ambulance in their community so the charity can continue being the difference between lives lost and lives saved.

Chris Thornton, Regional Director for St John Ambulance in the East Midlands, said: “We depend heavily on private and corporate donations, as we receive no core Government funding in carrying out our first aid services.”
