"In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2021 it was requested that someone take the lead in establishing the pharmacy lead vaccination program for the community in which Haddenham and District Rotary was located and of course Martin stepped up to the plate

Martin recruited and trained over 100 volunteers including other Haddenham and District Rotarians. Under Martin’s leadership the team of volunteers delivered up to 400 vaccinations per day

Martin successfully served his community at a crucial time and with his team of Haddenham volunteers gave over 2000 hours of their time towards vaccination efforts"

Amanda Watkin
General Secretary
Rotary International Britain and Ireland

5th March 2022, twelve months to the day and having safely delivered 33,800 vaccinations, Haddenham volunteers celebrated their first anniversary by holding a delightful afternoon tea party with delicious and plentiful food, generously hosted by the Haddenham Scout and Guide Association

 

MP for Buckingham, Greg Smith presented Haddenham Volunteers Co-ordinator Rotarian Martin Andrew with a Letter of Appreciation which Martin accepted on behalf of all the volunteers and himself presented each volunteer with a personalised Certificate to mark the occasion

 

Martin said: "It was good to see volunteers who I had only ever seen as eyes above a mask!

I offer every volunteer my heartfelt thanks for all you have done to support the pharmacy's vaccination programme. Furthermore, I had no idea how many jabs the vaccinators had done; I thought about 6,500... boy, was I wrong! I was astonished when local Vaccinator, Joe Kearney informed me they had administered over 33,800 jabs!"
