Masons step up and answer vaccination centres appeal
- Credit: Submitted
Freemasons and their families answered the call when an appeal was sounded for volunteers to support the NHS Vaccination Scheme.
More than a dozen Freemasons, some together with their partners, have been helping at Torquay’s Riviera International Conference Centre in Torquay which is an official vaccination facility.
Some are car park marshalls, others are in indoor administrators - and one has even landed a job with the Torbay NHS Helplines.
Masons are also among the volunteers helping at the Sherborne House vaccination point in Newton Abbot.
Ian Kingsbury, Provincial Grand Master, said how proud he was to see members of his own organisation, some of whom are vulnerable themselves, prepared to give their time to such a worthy endeavour and he wished to add his personal thank you to them
He said: “The vaccination programme is going to be in operation for several months and Freemasonry is committed to be there supporting the NHS and their local communities.”
