Connie - Volunteer Supervisor, Northern Devon Vaccination Clinic
My name is Connie, I am in my 70's and a retired grandmother of 10. I started volunteering at the Northern Devon Vaccination Clinic in February 2021 just for a couple of weeks but am still there now!
Volunteering has been a brilliant way to get me out of the house and make lots of new friends. As I live alone, the people I volunteer with and the staff feel like my family, I look forward to coming to the vaccination clinic. I definitely enjoy meeting new people and having a laugh whilst carrying out an important and supportive role within the vaccination clinic.
I'm proud of how I have helped and supported patients coming into the clinic, of whom many are extremely nervous. It gives me a real feeling of achievement.
Have a go and volunteer! We work hard, have fun, and achieve lots!
