Simon Mackintosh, Chancellor of the Order in Scotland and Vice-Chair of the Board of St John Scotland and Mrs Helen Burton, secretary to the Glasgow Committee of St John Scotland.

The Order of St John is an Order of Chivalry of the British Crown. With origins dating back to the 11th century, the modern Order can trace its roots to the first half of the 19th century, and was constituted as a Royal Order of Chivalry by Queen Victoria in 1888.

Members of the Order, alongside other volunteers, work as the charity St John Scotland to create a caring Scotland where more of us will survive a health crisis to live longer, and better. St John Scotland’s services are delivered by dedicated teams of volunteers, working in the heart of communities across the country. These include supporting communities with CPR training and Public Access Defibrillators, providing Patient Transport to oncology and dialysis patients, and supporting Community First Responders.
