Gail Johnson is the Chair of the St Ann Society. The St Ann Society organises numerous events with the purposes of fundraising and getting people out and bringing them together. These events include: dinner dances, quiz and bingo nights, concert trips, and even cricket matches. St Ann has their own cricket team that play against a Birmingham team annually. Gail tells us that the events are about having fun with a purpose.

During these events, members of the society also inform people what the St Ann Society is all about which they do through various media such as slideshows. They also visit schools in the area, and as a result, some of these have also become twinned with other schools in Jamaica.
