Rotarians volunteer as Covid Vaccination Centre Marshalls
"At the end of a cold busy day"
Together with other local clubs, Rotary Beckenham is helping to support the local community by volunteering as Covid Marshalls at vaccination centres in the borough. Our picture above shows Rotary West Wickham husband and wife team, Keith & Rosemary.
Club members have marshalled members of the public attending the Beckenham Beacon for their vaccinations. Duties included guiding, reassuring, assisting and checking in and handing the information forms to those attending the centre.
We are expecting to assist in marshalling at other local vaccination centres in due course.
