News from Reading Voluntary Action (RVA)
The snow on Sunday 23 January presented challenging conditions for the Reading Central and Whitley Vaccination Hub. Volunteers from the charity Re:Act were on standby to help, through the VCS Emergencies Partnership, but weren’t needed in the end. With grit, brooms and spades, RVA volunteers were able to keep the area clear and run the session pretty much as normal through the day.
The photos of volunteers show (clockwise from top left): Steve Leitch at the hub car park on Sunday morning; marshals David O’Kelly and Keith Ball at the site entrance; David Neale; Mary Neale and William Westwood.
More than 4000 people have been vaccinated over 9 days at the site run by Reading Primary Care Alliance.
