Admiral helps provide lifesaving skills to Newport

Local employer Admiral has come to the aid of St. John Cymru Youth Newport Division. The charity’s training aids were broken beyond repair so Admiral paid for brand new equipment costing £580.

Through their long running Community Chest Scheme, Admiral paid for a manikin family set and an anti-choking trainer, allowing the division to train volunteer members in vital lifesaving skills.

Stephen Marshall, who works in Admiral’s Claims department, and volunteers as a Cadet Officer for the charity, applied for the funds.

He said, “It would have taken us a lot of time and support to raise the amount of money needed, as the equipment is expensive. We’re so grateful for the funding. It means a lot to our young volunteers and may help save lives in the Newport community.”

“I’m proud the company I work for gives money to amazing causes likes St John Cymru – funding like this means that the charity can continue being public and free to all we train.”

Admiral’s Community Chest Scheme has been running for over ten years and gives thousands of pounds annually to local charities and organisations in South Wales.
