The Covid -19 vaccination programme has started and, on the basis of vulnerability, the over 8o’s and over 70’s have priority. Many do not drive and cannot use public transport so it is difficult to get out and about, particularly in January, February and March.
Sunbury Neighbours is a local voluntary group of drivers who take older people and anyone who finds it difficult to get around to appointments at local surgeries and hospitals. Over the coming months, Sunbury Neighbours will be helping those who have priority by driving them to vaccination appointments if they need transport.
If you would like to support the vaccination programme and could spare some time to drive older people to a vaccination centre and then take them home, we would love you to join us. If we contact you with a request and you can’t help, it is fine to say “no”.
The more people who sign up, the more likely it is that we will be able to help someone in our community with a very practical transport problem. And don’t worry, we will not sign you up for evermore – although you would be very welcome to join us! This is a time limited initiative that we are setting up to help in response to the current crisis and the need to ensure that the vaccination programme is successful.
If you would like to help or would like to find out more please contact Sunbury Neighbours on 07956822546.
