Wales’ leading first aid charity, St John Cymru Wales, has found a new Bridgend base after taking on the running of a former day centre.
HRH The Duchess of Gloucester, who is the Commandant-in Chief for St. John in Wales, will officially open the new Centre on Wednesday, 21 September at 2.30pm.
St John Cymru Wales’ main headquarters is in Cardiff, but the Bridgend Centre will enable the charity to make a real difference to the people of Bridgend County Borough.
The charity has completed the purchase of the Minerva Centre in Minerva Street from its previous owners, Bridgend County Borough Council.
Keith Dunn, OBE, Chief Executive for St John Cymru Wales said: “Our volunteers are absolutely delighted to have found a new home. This much needed facility has already made a real difference to us and we will be able to expand the services that the charity has to offer the community, such as first aid training, volunteering for young people and adults, and helping to meet our vision of putting a first aider in every home in Wales. The new Centre is already up and running and is making a real difference in the area."
