Team leader Scott Morrison answered a few quick fire questions as part of a recent article in the Wesser World quarterly magazine. Enjoy!
A strong cup of tea! (Milk no sugar thanks!)
> How would you describe your job to a child?
I go to people’s houses and tell them all about saving lives and see if they would like to help other people to save lives too.
> What is your biggest achievement to date – personal or professional?
Being a top fundraiser for St. John Ambulance and raising enough money to buy an ambulance!
> What do you like most about your job?
Meeting such amazing people who I work with, and the confidence building skills that come with the job. But mostly knowing that when I go out there every day, who knows how many lives I’ve saved just by giving out a first aid guide or getting a donation. We never know when that first aid guide may come in useful to save a life.
> What advice would you give to new starters?
Don’t panic on your first day. It’s always scary and daunting, and when you hear other people’s presentations you automatically think your one is not good, but stick to the one you’ve learned till you’re confident, and once you are, you naturally add extra little touches here and there. Be lovely, be cheery, be genuine, be confident and you’ll do well!
> When was the last time you laughed so hard you cried?
Watching a fellow fundraiser “Faye” walk down a path to a house, not notice the step to the door and tripping over it ha-ha!
> What’s your favourite line from a film?
“Some people can’t believe in themselves until someone else believes in them first.”– Sean Maguire, from Good Will Hunting
> If you had to eat one meal, every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?
> Favourite travel spot?
Lancaster County, Pennsylvania USA
