An "enthusiastic and energetic" manager for St John Ambulance, whose hard work was recognised by the High Sherriff, is stepping down.

Christopher Levis, from Norwich, joined St John Ambulance in 2009 while he was studying at the University of East Anglia.

He was acknowledged by Norfolk High Sherriff Michael Gurney for his valuable service to the community.

Mr Levis became district manager in 2014 and led the charity during  the pandemic, attracting over 340 new volunteers and supporting vaccination centres across the county.

A spokesperson for St John Ambulance said: "Chris has been a trusted, effective and popular district manager in Norfolk for several years.

"He has inspired both adult and younger members by his enthusiasm and energy.

"He has been an absolute pleasure to work with, is kind and thoughtful, never loses his cool and is always positive."
