St John Ambulance's training programme for volunteer staff at St Hilda's College

St John Ambulance train volunteer vaccinators at St Hilda's College

The volunteer-led health charity St John Ambulance ran a training programme for volunteer staff each weekend from 23/24 January - 27/28 February, using St Hilda's as an Oxford Training hypercentre. At the end of the programme, 981 people had been trained by 50 SJA volunteer staff:  793 vaccinators, 134 care volunteers and 54 patient advocates.

We were delighted to help with their efforts to help vaccinate the nation by donating our buildings, including the first-time use of our new Pavilion and Anniversary Building. Thank you to our own volunteer staff who helped to make sure that everything ran smoothly. Many thanks also to neighbouring Magdalen College School and Oxford City Council who provided parking on the school grounds and near to Cowley Place for the trainers and volunteers.
