Petition to Members Of The Board

Please Help Save St John Ambulance (St Marys Cadets NSW) Our Community Needs Your Support

St Marys Cadet Division located in Western Sydney is currently on track to be closed within weeks. Please help us support the division by signing this petition now and to share this with your friends and family.  The St John Ambulance Cadet youth group have been running for almost thirty years in our local area, and range from eight to eighteen years of age, they provide opportunities for young people to develop their skills, engage in the provision of community first aid services providing First-Aid at sporting events, local carnivals, concerts and the Royal Easter Show. But it’s not all about blood so to speak, aside from learning, First-Aid, basic nursing techniques, and so forth they also learn leadership and administration skills, animal care, cookery and nutrition, boating, camping, and many others. Once they have completed First Aid training, they may attend certain first aid duties under the supervision of an adult volunteer. There are various excursions and camps for Juniors and Cadets on an interstate and international level. It's a great opportunity to meet other volunteers, learn new things, participate in competitions and most importantly, have fun! Many young volunteers have found St John Ambulance to be a valuable stepping stone for careers in NSW Ambulance, nursing or medicine. And many of those have come through St Marys Cadets. We don’t believe that this division should close at all especially so close to Christmas. We are holding this petition and ask that our community get behind this great cause. The Cadets of the division are determined to keep the doors open and are keeping positive. If you or anyone you know are wanting to join St John Ambulance or St Marys Cadets Please Call 1300 St John. Thank you for being so supportive!
