Holy garage

A HUGE garage sale in Bicton tomorrow (Sunday October 14) will help raise funds for the St John Fellowship.

Most of the fellowship’s members are retired St John volunteers; the caring bods you might see looking after the first aid tent at the Perth Royal Show.

Proceeds of the sale will go towards the upkeep of the St John Ambulance museum (up in Belmont), the St John Eye Hospital in Jerusalem and helping with the welfare of local retired volunteers.

The fellowship are a close-knit group and help their eldest members out with a host of odd jobs, up to forming a fully-badged guard of honour for funerals, says member Neil Warne.

This year for the first time some funds will also go towards supporting a St John Ambulance staff program which supports first aid training in Vietnam.

Mr Warne says loads of household items, small furniture and plants have been donated; he’s had a busy week carting them to his home at 20 Wrexham Place, where they’ll be up for sale from early Sunday morning.
