Volunteer response to the London bombings

I’d like to use my blog to highlight the role volunteers played in supporting the statutory services in London. From reading the information on the St. John Ambulance and British Red Cross websites you can see that:

There were 37 St. John and 25 Red Cross Ambulances, 20 mobile treatment centres from St. John, emergency response vehicles from the Red Cross and more than 200 volunteers working to help during the incident.

St. John are still providing 24×7 first aid cover, staffed by volunteers for the search and recovery operation.

There will be many other organisations I haven’t mentioned (WRVS, Salvation Army etc) and I think we should all remember when they are collecting for money in the street the usefulness of that donation.
