Thanks to Covid Volunteers

Part of the Co-op ethos is to put help and support of local communities at the centre of everything they do, and Haddenham and Walton Court Co-op Stores, in collaboration, made a donation to share a little bit of festive cheer with community members who have given exemplary service as COVID Vaccination Volunteers in recent times.

Starting in March 2020, Haddenham and District Rotary's Martin Andrew has recruited and trained over 100 volunteers including other Haddenham Rotarians, and managed the volunteer rota delivering up to 400 vaccinations each day.

Vaccination volunteers have assisted at the JMW Vicary Pharmacy in Haddenham by supervising car parking, managing the queues waiting for their vaccination, conducted mandatory observations of the vaccinated, and where appropriate offered advice to the public

The Co-op wanted to recognise the exceptional effort of the 10 volunteers who have selflessly each contributed well over 40 hours each to the Haddenham vaccination programme and on Saturday 18th December their efforts were celebrated and rewarded with a gift.

Indeed the top volunteer Lynne has done over 140 hours, and Martin himself has now exceeded 140 hours. A truly exceptional effort on behalf of our community!

The team of Haddenham volunteers has donated an overall total of 2,000 hours of work, and across Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire, vaccination volunteers, many of them Rotarians, have donated over 50,000 hours.

This represents a remarkable level of committment.

Looking forward, Haddenham is very likely to need many more volunteering hours in 2022. Please come and help.

Everyone welcome.
