In December 2020 Unity was asked to provide volunteers to support the medical teams at two Vaccination Centres in Andover and Romsey.
A call was put out to the community and over 500 people registered an interest to come along and help where they could. Too many volunteers in fact to work with, although many were signed up and we were able to be sign-posted to different roles including shopping for the elderly and prescription collecting.
At the Romsey Vaccination Centre, we are proud to have supported 105 vaccination sessions with 93 different volunteers. Our volunteers turned up in all weathers and always smiling. Their efforts were supported by several local businesses who provided refreshments for all involved. Domino’s Pizza also provided hot pizza during the coldest periods.
During a national emergency it is great that local people from Andover and Romsey (in good numbers) rose to the challenge of doing their bit for the national effort – Thank You! #VolunteersWeek
