The last Covid inoculation clinics took place at the Crosfield Hall on Wednesday 9th June and Unity Chair, Dorothy Baverstock and Chief Executive, Terry Bishop, attended accompanied by Christianne Ireland and Greg Alexander; all of whom were there to say heartfelt thanks to the volunteers and the NHS staff who have worked hand in glove since December 2020 to ensure the Romsey residents could access over 28,000 jabs as seamlessly as possible.
More than 90 volunteers have actively provided support throughout these months, often responding to late shift changes and working evenings and weekends too, regardless of weather conditions, which at times, was extremely cold and wet.
Dorothy Baverstock, Unity Chairman said, “On behalf of the entire Unity Board of Trustees, we would like to express our gratitude to all the volunteers who have provided support as Car Park Wardens, Meet and Greeters and Cleaners. They have had an essential role to play in helping local residents, and we are overwhelmed by their kindness. Our thanks must also go to the NHS staff who have been exceptional and without a doubt, helped save local lives.”
Unity Chief Executive, Terry Bishop stated, “Talking to volunteers, it was apparent that there was a real sense of pride in being a small part of this critical inoculation programme. To say thank you to them and to the Unity staff who behind the scenes have worked hard to support them seems so insignificant, but we are now in discussions to plan a real thank you to everyone in due course.”
