St John Ambulance are seeking volunteers to join the NHS COVID-19 vaccine team and we are delighted to report that Freemasons from across Northamptonshire and Huntingdonshire have responded magnificently with over 100-volunteers now on stand-by to assist.

The NHS has begun what will be the largest vaccination programme in its history, and Freemasonry has been asked to be part of the team that helps to protect millions of people.

St John Ambulance is providing full training and the initial commitment is for volunteers to be available for at least two eight-hour shifts each month.

A huge thank you to those who have been able to step forward by offering support to St John in their roll out programme across the Province.

In addition, many of the local Masonic centres around the Province have made their buildings available to the St John logistics team and further news in this regard is expected shortly.

Assistant Provincial Grand Master WBro Mark Constant said

We are incredibly excited about playing our part in the National fight back against COVID-19 and in creating a healthier, safer and more resilient future.

Further updates on this wonderful initiative will follow.
