Haddenham COVID Volunteer Programme

Haddenham Rotarian Creates Volunteer Vaccination Programme at JMW Vicary Pharmacy in Haddenham. Volunteers receive Co-op recognition for 'exceptional community contribution'


Haddenham and District Rotary COVID Support Programme


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
conducting mandatory observations of the vaccinated, and offered appropriate advice to the public

The local Co-op group of stores wanted to recognise the exceptional effort of all volunteers
and especially the 10 volunteers who have selflessly 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

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

The team of Haddenham volunteers has donated an overall total of 2000 hours of work

Across Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire vaccination volunteers,
many of them Rotarians, have donated over 50,000 hours

A truly exceptional commitment and very likely many more volunteering hours to come in 2022
