Sir Brian Bell Foundation helps St John Ambulance continue operations

St John Ambulance has been supported by the late Sir Brian Bell personally for over 30 years and most recently the Foundation since his passing.

The Sir Brian Bell Foundation has provided support to St John Ambulance with funding assistance to maintain its operations while working to secure ongoing financial commitments in March of 2017, continuing the late Sir Brian Bells wishes.

Brian Bell Group Chairman Ian Clough said in 2017 that the Foundation had provided this assistance as a short-term relief and were working to help raise awareness of the organisation and support funding discussions.

“Over time Sir Brian personally had provided a significant sum but the specifics aren’t easy to calculate,” Mr Clough said. “Im really keen to highlight the challenges but focus on the improvements the organisation has made and the size of the risk if they don’t see the support they need. Hopefully, this will create an awareness that gets the remaining people needed on board” he said.

The Sir Brian Bell Foundation will continue to support St John Ambulance in 2019 and beyond.

St John Ambulance Emergency First Aid Kits

Sir Brian Bell Foundation First Aid Kits launched at Brian Bell locations in Port Moresby in early 2018 in partnership with St John Ambulance.

The kits were specifically customised by St John Ambulance paramedics to suit PNG conditions and common medical emergencies in PNG such as snake bite and drowning. Also included is a manual for quick reference for all types of First Aid Emergencies.

These are being sold by St John Ambulance EHS Officers in Brian Bell Port Moresby locations for K100. All proceeds go to St John Ambulance to assist in their operations.
