St John, a voluntary organisation in Bloemfontein, has received a financial injection to enable it to render essential services to the community.

Icon Oncology donated R30 000 which was hand over in Bloemfontein on Tuesday, 29 October. St John is a Level 1 BBBEE contributor and is a volunteer organisation that is geared towards developing the youth and serving the community with medical care.

Jennifer Fuller, Icon Oncology regional manager, said the donation was done with its corporate social responsibility in mind and has thanked St John for the essential service it renders to many of the hospital patients who would not be able to get to Icon for treatment.

The managed care partnership between Icon and St John has been going on since 2011, with St John providing an ambulance to transport cancer in-patients from hospitals to the Icon Oncology Bloemfontein unit for their daily radiotherapy treatment.

Jillian Mludek, centre manager at St John, said the donation will benefit four learners from the Tsoseletso High School. They have been earmarked to attend the International Cadet Camp (ICC) in 2020 in Cape Town, the first international camp in SA.
