Shirley Eberlein in Dover Health Center

Submitted by Michael Prebble

With many people returning to work, now that the restrictions have started to lift, volunteers are needed to help out at the Dover health center on the road to Maison Dieu.

Rotarian Robin Dodridge has been recruiting and managing volunteers since the start of the year.

As the Rotary Zone Coordinator stretching from Dungeness to Sandwich, Kent, he was instrumental in organizing marshalls for vaccination centers across Dover and Folkestone.

Robin was aided in this epic challenge by members of the Rotary clubs South Foreland, Folkestone, Channel and Hythe.

The support has been incredible however, many of those who had given up their time have now returned to their jobs.

As a result, there is an urgent need for volunteers to support the NHS in their ongoing task of vaccinating the local community against Covid-19.

It takes people to help with the gathering tasks, to lead and support those arriving for their vaccination.

The center is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day and volunteers work three-hour shifts, indoors or outdoors. Volunteers choose which shifts they can manage.

Many who gave up their time to help said it could be very rewarding, saying it was a privilege to have helped in a modest way.

If you can contribute to this vital national task, your support would be greatly appreciated.
