Upgrade for St John Ambulance

This morning the Lismore Branch of St Johns Ambulance Australia (NSW) unveiled their new tablet chairs for their training rooms over a morning tea with the help of Lismore MP Thomas George.

St John were able to purchase these seats after they were recently successful in receiving a grant of almost $12,000 from the Community Building Program, which provides funds for community groups and local councils to invest in community infrastructure throughout NSW.

Lismore branch manager, Nancy Casson, said it was fantastic to receive the new chairs as their old ones just weren't up to the task anymore.

"We were actually getting comments on the student evaluation forms about how uncomfortable our chairs were."


These we've had for about two weeks, and the students have just been raving about them.


Mr George said it was fantastic to see the community supportive organization receive this gift.

He said the chairs were a positive, not only in terms of comfort, but because it "creates a better learning environment."

"If you're comfortable you learn quicker," he said.
