15th January 2021 — Head of Music and Textiles teacher at The Royal School, Miss Jo Hart, spent part of the Christmas holiday undertaking training to become a volunteer vaccinator, to assist the NHS with the huge task of rolling out the newly approved vaccines to the general public.
Miss Hart is more used to handling embroidery needles, having trained at The Royal School of Needlework – a serious hobby she has pursued for many years.
However, she is now swapping her embroidery needles for vaccination needles, as the country looks on in hope that the roll out of the vaccination will return some sort of normality to our lives.
An Advanced First Aider with St John Ambulance, Miss Hart has been volunteering in her spare time throughout the pandemic, helping in hospitals, moving ambulances to London and assisting with Covid-19 testing.
Miss Hart is one of many St John Ambulance volunteers who have been called upon to help with the vaccination programme.
Having completed her training at the end of December, she will shortly be deployed to one of the many mass vaccination centres being set up around the country.
