Welsh landmarks to 'go yellow' for St John Ambulance Cymru

Landmarks across Wales will light up in yellow this week, celebrating the unwavering efforts our St John people in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our charity would usually celebrate St John’s Day (24th June) together, but we will be unable to this year due to ongoing restrictions.

Instead, monuments across Wales will be supporting the tremendous efforts of our staff and volunteers and celebrating their exceptional work by illuminating yellow on Thursday.

“We’ve been there for communities in Wales for over 100 years and our volunteers have given tens of thousands of hours supporting critical COVID-19 projects including caring for patients at Wales’ field hospitals and providing vital patient transport support to the NHS.

Now, our volunteers have stepped up once again and continue to be there for people when they need it most at Wales’ vaccination centres.

The pandemic has made us re-evaluate this year’s St John’s Day celebrations and we’re so grateful to all those who will be joining us to help make this day a memorable one for our St John people.”
