St John takes the Glambulance on the road for a Great Southern glow-up
The St John Glambulance hit the road last week to join Albany in the city’s Pride celebrations.
Along with Kura Bear – who was a hit with our Great Southern friends – the St John crew spent the day checking out the market stalls, getting down to the DJ – and AUSLAN interpreter who stole the show, and getting all googly-eyed at the dog fashion parade.
A rainy day could not spoil the fun of the fair, with the Glambulance adding substantial flair to the celebrations.
Volunteers Heather and Jessica, from the Albany sub centre, helped ensure the St John message of love and respect for the LGBTQIA+ community reached far and wide, and it was a privilege to see the amount of respect the people of Albany have for our services.
The Glambulance, which was designed by Perth artist Nathan Richards, showcases the theme of RESPECT and how St John embodies that in everyday life.
In 2020 the Glambulance travelled to Broome, and last year it featured in St John’s Pride float – winning the organisation Best in Show at the parade.
St John WA Acting People and Culture Director, Donna Lawrence said the St John WA team enjoyed bringing PrideFEST’s vision to life, shining a light on inclusivity through this important initiative.
“We’re so proud to continue our support of the LGBTIQA+ community with our unique contribution to the PrideFEST parade,” she said.
