On 22nd November, young volunteers who have saved lives, shown exceptional bravery, or overcome difficult personal circumstances, were recognised by HRH The Princess Royal at St John Ambulance’s annual Young Achievers awards.

The special event, held at the Priory Church in London, celebrated St John Ambulance Badgers (ages 5-10), Cadets (ages 11-17), and young carers who have made outstanding contributions to their communities.
