Order for Ambulance
On Thursday evening last at the meeting of the Gascoyne-Car narvon St. John Ambulance Sub.-Centre the chairman, Mr. D, Norton, made reference to the very substantial donation of £105 made hy thc Whaling Commission to the appeal. A very gratifying response to the request made to them. i
The mock court held during race week yielded £66 which was very satisfactory and those res ponsible are to be commended.
With the financial statement standing at £620, the secretary has been instructed to write to
the Head Centre asking that they j
place an order for an Ambulance immediately upon receipt of a favourable reply from the W.A. Lotteries Commission, who have promised at least £400. There may be some difficulty in obtain ing a four-wheel drive, but every effort will be made on behalf of this Sub-Centi'e by St. John Am bulance Association. A request that the installation of a two way wireless telephone communi cation at a later date be consid ered in the building of the chasis, will be forwarded. This will cost approximately £200.
Advice has been received that any person donating the sum of £10 or over will receive a framed life membership certificate from Head Centre. It is hoped that a presentation of these will be made
at some suitable time early in the new year.
The cost of the ambulance will be in the vicinity of £1600-£1650 so that it is eseential that a con tinual flow of donations be made to the appeal. The sub-centre is fully confident that the finance' will be raised by the required time. '
