Community servant: Murray Spearman is modest about his volunteer work at St John. Photo: NICOLA MURPHY Long-standing: John Turnwald has been serving St John for 62 years. By NICOLA MURPHY Murray Spearman says he would be useless on an ambulance call but that hasn t stopped St John giving him one of its highest honours. He was promoted to commander, the second highest honour behind a knight, in recognition for his 15 years service. Mr Spearman is among the 86 volunteers in New Zealand who were honoured by St John this month for services to the organisation. The father-of-two chaired the committee which has completed more than $1.6 million worth of building projects and remained debt-free. These include upgrading and extending Te Atatu s ambu- lance station and building a new premises at Whenuapai. He is also an elected member of the Northern Region Trust Board and several other project subcommittees. I would be useless on an ambu- lance call but if I can assist with some of my skills then I feel I have made a contribution to what is a very good cause, he says. All the things we ve achieved I couldn t have done on my own. So I feel a little embarrassed that I ve been acknowledged and no one else from my team has. The Kumeu resident is retiring from his job as chief executive of The Trusts in March but will con- tinue his work at St John. John Turnwald of Green Bay has been honoured for 62 years of ser- vice to St John. The 84-year-old is the organis- ation s longest-serving member in the northern region. You get to help people, meet people and you learn a lot, he says. Mr Turnwald is a primary one first-aider, which is one step above having a regular first aid certificate and has volunteered at several local events. For the past four years he has worked in the archive department in Mt Wellington. St John chief executive Jaimes Wood says the volunteers people make an incredible contribution to their communities. Without volunteers St John would struggle to provide the level of services in local communities that we currently do, he says.
