Local Co-op Supports Haddenham COVID Vaccination Volunteers

 

Co-op ethos is to put help and support of local communities at the centre of everything they do

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

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

Indeed the top volunteer Lynne has done over 140 hours, and Martin himself has now exceeded 140 hours

 An exceptional effort on behalf of our community

The team of Haddenham volunteers has donated an overall total of 2000 hours of work, and across Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire, vaccination volunteers, many of them Rotarians, have donated over 50,000 hours. A truly exceptional commitment

It is very likely Haddenham will donate many more volunteer hours in 2022

Haddenham Rotary's Drive Thru Santa

 

Our grateful thanks to IVOR MILES, Haddenham Garage, for their generous support

 

 

This year we raised £1750 for our charity fund, which will enable us to continue supporting deserving causes in our local community  

This message from one of our happy visitors, typical of the messages of support we have received:

"I wanted to extend my sincere thanks to the Santa and [Rotary] team in Haddenham
My family is having to isolate at the moment so Santa kindly video called our children and had a wonderful conversation with them as we could not attend our slot in person

Thank you for adapting to the situation and for giving them that experience despite our circumstances

It meant a lot to us as a family"

 

A big THANK YOU from Haddenham and District Rotary to all who visited Santa this year
