A TRIO of volunteers have notched up a whopping 3,000 hours of service between them in just one year.

Edna Worrall, Lilian Parsons and Marilyn Peters all gave their time to benefit the Gravesend and Northfleet divisions of St John's Ambulance in 2008.

This month they were honoured for their individual 1,000 hours and awarded voluntary certificates at the charity's awards evening.

John Hougham, Commander of St John Ambulance in Kent, presented the certificates.

He said: "It is always a delight to present members with their 1,000 hour certificates as it really reinforces the commitment and dedication of our volunteer members across the county. It was my privilege to present 14 1,000 hour certificates during the presentation evening."

Lilian Parsons (First Aider) and Marilyn Peters (Advanced First Aider) are both based at Gravesend and Edna Worrall is Superintendent covering both Northfleet and Gravesend divisions.

St John Ambulance in Kent has more than 27 divisional headquarters, eight training centres across the county and more than 1,000 members including adults, youth and children.

It provides first aid cover at sporting and community events across the county and delivers a variety of health and safety and first aid courses to members of the public and to companies of all sizes.

THe award ceremony took place on Friday November 13.
