AFM has donated £1,000 to St John Emergency Ambulance Service. The money was raised by the facilities management company at the annual staff Christmas raffle.
The generous donation will go towards the ongoing running costs for St John Emergency Ambulance Service. Whilst the service is largely funded by the States of Guernsey, St John relies on donations from the public to continue to deliver this and other essential services to the Bailiwick community.
Jon Beausire, chief officer of St John Emergency Ambulance Service said: “Donations like this assist in keeping the island’s emergency ambulance service operating and I would like to thank all of the employees at AFM for choosing to support us during their festive celebrations. Donations like this supports St john in providing emergency cover and paramedic response to the community”.
Ross Falla, finance director for AFM said: “We are pleased to donate this substantial amount of money which was raised by our employees purchasing raffle tickets for the annual staff party Christmas draw. As a local business we wanted to donate the funds raised to a charity that offers support to everyone on the island so we decided St John Emergency Ambulance Service was a very worthy cause.”
“The money will help towards the organisation’s own fundraising efforts, and help to maintain the vital equipment and vehicles required to provide medical treatment but will also prove beneficial to all islanders who have cause to rely on this emergency service.
St John is proud to deliver the emergency ambulance service in an efficient and effective manner to the Bailiwick community for more than 75 years.
