Bombay School makes 120 ambulances



Monday saw the launch of the new St John Toy Ambulance campaign, where the aim is to turn the toy ambulances into a real one for St John.

With 455,000 ambulance calls, 428,000 patients cared for and nearly 20 million kilometres travelled in New Zealand in the past year alone, St John ambulances and their paramedics are many New Zealanders’ first port of call in an emergency.
The 106-piece block set toy ambulances are being sold for $15 each, which will help raise money to buy a new fully- equipped ambulance.
The 120 display toy ambulances are ready to roll out to ASB branch’s across New Zealand, all thanks to the students at Bombay School.
On the back of a St John in School session that provides learning experiences for children to empower them to act in an emergency, Bombay School students helped put together more than 120 toy ambulances.
“St John really values the ongoing support of ASB. All money raised from the toy ambulances will go towards buying a new, lifesaving ambulance for New Zealand communities. A fully equipped ambulance costs more than $200,000 and we couldn’t fund them without our generous supporters and partners such as ASB,” says St John Director of Customers and Services, Peter Loveridge.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
