Congratulations to Bill Hill - winner of the 2020 Long Service Award!
In 1956 Bill had a serious accident and was so grateful for the assistance of The Order of St John he decided he would give back to the organisation. He joined in 1977 as a volunteer, and for 42 years has undertaken many roles, the latest being Health Shuttle Driver. Bill loves all people, regardless of age, ethnicity, etc and always treats everyone with respect, caring and friendliness. It is safe to say that any debt Bill felt he owed to St John has been well and truly paid back.
Congratulations Bill! and thanks to Seasons Magazine who have provided Bill's prize.
