Congratulations to Brett James for becoming a member of the Order of St John
In November 2017, Dunedin Client Manager Brett James was made a Member of the Order of St John at a national investiture ceremony held at St Paul’s Cathedral in Dunedin.
This honour is sanctioned by the Queen and presented by the Governor-General Dame Patsy Reddy.
Brett has been a volunteer with St John for more than 25 years and works as an operational volunteer on frontline ambulances, as well as at community events as a Volunteer Team leader and Dunedin Area Committee deputy chairman.
Membership of the order is awarded to individuals who have acted conspicuously in carrying out St John’s mission in New Zealand – to prevent and relieve sickness and injury, and to act to enhance the health and wellbeing of people of all races and creeds.
Factors used to determine admission or promotion include dedicated service, the quality of contribution, successful leadership and the potential for future leadership or administration.
Congratulations Brett on such an honourable and prestigious achievement!
