Dedication of Volunteer
David is one of the most dedicated members in St John Ambulance. He works for a private ambulance company as well where he works shifts that sometimes last thirteen or fourteen hours. After working hard all week, David will still show up for duties and training with a smile on his face and a cup of coffee in his hand. He puts 100% into everything he does and he is completely reliable, David has shown this dedication since he first joined the organisation over thirty years ago. David will put in at least one thousand hours of volunteering a year in addition to his fundraising efforts. An example of these efforts was raising €65,000 to purchase a new ambulance and the first automatic chest compressor for St John Ambulance.
