Beyond the usual forms of donation or fundraising, there are several other ways you can give to St John. Any type of donation is gratefully accepted; all help to pay the operating costs of our emergency and community services.

Giving to remember someone special

If someone close to you passes away, and you’re organising the funeral, you can ask people to donate to St John in lieu of flowers. You can also mark the anniversary of someone’s death by making a donation to St John – these are called ‘in memory’ donations and can be made through the donations page. You can choose to make donations in memory at other times too, i.e. on a special anniversary that means a lot to you.

Giving something specific that we need

You might like to donate money for specific items or medical equipment that St John needs. We can help you to select an appropriate item or piece of equipment.

Giving items or products that we could sell

You can donate items that could be sold to raise money for St John. We can potentially turn those items into cash that will help to run our services.

Donating a service

If you or your business performs a service that we could use, talk to us about the possibilities. Pro bono arrangements help to keep our costs down, so that more money can go towards maintaining our emergency and community services.
