Important update: resumption of face-to-face fundraising

Thank you for supporting St John Ambulance!

As restrictions lift, the decision to restart door-to-door fundraising has been thoroughly evaluated. Following a successful trial period, face-to-face fundraising will now resume as normal. We will continue to monitor fundraiser and donor feedback in the same way as we have done for the trial period.

As a clinically-led organisation we have worked hard to ensure this activity will be undertaken sensitively, safely and responsibly, with extra measures in place to protect everyone’s health. 


About face-to-face fundraising

As a charity, face-to-face fundraising is very important to us, because regular donations mean we can plan for the future more effectively.

We use a professional fundraising agency, like many other charities, to help us raise the most funds we can. For over 20 years, we have been fundraising door-to-door with Wesser Ltd, a well-established family run business that has raised over £62 million from our loyal door-to-door supporters across the country. Wesser Ltd are subject to regular audits to ensure the highest level of service is provided.

All door-to-door fundraisers wear a St John Ambulance branded t-shirt, body warmer, or coat, and carry a professional ID badge with all legally-required details. They go from door-to-door, talking to people about our work and asking them to consider supporting us by giving a regular donation by direct debit.

Wesser Ltd have recruited over 350,000 supporters for St John Ambulance through speaking to our door-to-door fundraisers. We continue to increase awareness of first aid and support for our work through our door-to-door activity, which in turn means we can save more lives across the UK.
