St. John Ambulance Hungerford Division

St John Ambulance is the UK ‘s leading first aid, transport and care charity. Its mission is to provide first aid and medical support services, caring services in support of community needs and education, training and personal development to young people.

The Hungerford Division has been an established feature of the local community since 1931. 
It comprises Adult Volunteers, Cadets, aged 10-18 years, and Badgers, aged 6-10 years.

We train ourselves and others in first aid and health and safety, provide emergency first aid response and help young people to appreciate and accept social responsibility. We regularly stand duty at community and sporting events, in the town and beyond.

Our first ambulance was purchased in 1936 with the proceeds of community fund-raising and our latest ambulance was funded by the Hungerford Tragedy Appeal as a mark of local thanks for our “active service”.

The Division operates from its Headquarters building on Station Approach, which incorporates a hall, for training and hire, and an ambulance station, as well as administrative and domestic facilities. Subject to normal safeguards, St John Ambulance is always willing to share its facilities with like-minded organisations.

The Division meets on alternate Mondays and details of these meetings and how to join can be found on the notice board at the Corn Exchange in the High Street, or you can visit our web site:
