Lighting up green in support of St John Ambulance

Published: 25th November 2016

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council will illuminate Enniskillen Castle and the Strule Arts Centre, Omagh, green on Friday 2 December 2016 in recognition of St John Ambulance and to highlight the importance of first aid training for all.

St. John Ambulance Northern Ireland (NI) has 990 adult volunteers who delivered a total of 45,000 hours of service in 2014 alone. The registered charity embraces all sections of the community and through its youth section offers a wide range of activities to over 1000 young people under the age of 25.

The green light up campaign has been organised locally by the Enniskillen division of St John Ambulance. The charity depends on donations to keep its volunteer first aiders and volunteer ambulance crews trained to the highest standards. Donations are also used to maintain and update its ambulance, which is often seen at many local events.

The lighting up of Council facilities is just one way in which the Council may provide support to a particular charity. Enquiries regarding illuminating Council properties and charity support should be made to Louise McLaughlin, Fermanagh and Omagh District Council’s Community Services team, by telephoning 0300 303 1777 or emailing louise.mclaughlin@fermanaghomagh.com.
