Marion Sharrock, St John Ambulance Vice President from Merseyside

Marion Sharrock, 1950sNorth West‘Since joining St John Ambulance in 1954, I have undertaken many duties including providing treatment at the Promenade Hospital.

After I joined, I started working towards the Grand Prior Cadet badge and became the first nursing Cadet in Southport to achieve the award.

In 1963, I was promoted to Cadet Officer and I spent many weeks taking Cadets to camp or on training or youth hostelling weekends.

I also had the honour of being invited to a garden party at Buckingham Palace in 1998 and this coincided with my 40 years of volunteering.

St John Ambulance is really a way of life for my family. Long may it continue.’
