A Book of Remembrance
Carol Calvert volunteered with St John Ambulance since 1992. In her time in St John, she performed many duties, she was the Divisional Superintendent at the former Saddleworth Adults for a number of years. In recent times she has been based in Denton Unit where she was the training lead for the Unit. Carol was a regular at all local community events and dedicated a large amount of her volunteering time supporting the MCFC and MUFC stadiums. During the COVID Pandemic, Carol supported at the Manchester Hyper Centre helping to train over 1,000 volunteers in vaccination. Carol was a dedicated trainer and would also help at local unit and district training events. A large percentage of front line volunteers in Manchester would have received training from Carol at one point in the volunteering career. Carols dedication to training did not stop just inside St John, she was a keen community advocate and looked for every opportunity to be out in the community training first aid awareness skills.
