Get the needle with LINK!
The title doesn’t mean that you should get annoyed with us, It’s all about the vaccination against Covid-19. Since the first lockdown last March we’ve not been as busy as we were before as many hospital visits were postponed or cancelled and we were all told to stay at home anyway. At the same time many of our volunteers were deemed to be in the vulnerable group of the over 70’s. Fortunately some of our younger volunteers said they were still prepared to drive and we’re very grateful to them for holding the fort until some of the older generation can return.
Now the challenge facing LINK is to provide transport for some of the vulnerable groups over 70 to get to the local vaccination hub which is currently based at Rowden Hill Surgery across the road from Chippenham Hospital. Some of you may have driven past it on your way into Chippenham and noticed a large white marquee next to the surgery.
With the vaccination process about to take off in our part of Wiltshire we urgently need more volunteers to help transport our older clients for their jab. If you are under 70 and feel that you’d like to help with this process, to ensure that clients in the first 4 groups can receive their inoculation, please ring the LINK number 07970 617617 to find out more and having joined us we would love you to stay.
Many thanks Susan Hatton - Chairman
