Lynn is a Trustee of Brentwood Mutual Aid. Gill is a vaccine volunteer. Lynne told us that the group began in March 2020 in response to community needs brought into sharp focus by  the pandemic. Very quickly there were over 1,000 volunteers, organsied to assist people through neighbourhood WhatsApp groups across the borough. People helped with the everyday realities such as shopping, collecting prescriptions, anything that vulnerable people could not undertake through being in lockdown. Social isolation was highlighted by the pandemic and now many volunteers are engaged in befriending. With the development of the vaccine and the opening of centres, volunteers were need to assist those attended. Gill decided to have a go at this role and stated that after one day she was hooked. Many of the first people attending for vaccinations were vulnerable people who needed reassurance. With many volunteers no longer available through returning to work, children back at school etc, there is an urgent need for more vaccine volunteers. There are many people with needs across the community and the more people who are volunteers, the more people can be helped. Both Lynn and Gill said that volunteers give as little or as much time as they can. More information is available by phoning 01277 424953 and also be visiting the website www.brentwood-mutual-aid.org. There is also a Facebook group with over 2.5k members. This includes information on resources that are available.

Gill Bell, Lynn Connelly and Patrick.
