Tea Break for Vaccination Centre

Volunteers and staff at a Covid vaccination centre will be able to continue to enjoy a reviving cuppa, thanks to Darlington Rotary.

When Rotary found out that the Darlington Arena Vaccination centre had run out of funds to provide tea, coffee and biscuits they came to the rescue.

Several members of Darlington Rotary volunteer at the centre and a chance conversation with NHS Matron Deborah Harris, who runs the operation, lead to a call out to President, Peter Phillips, who approved an emergency donation of £100 to replenish the refreshments.

Peter said: ‘They have been doing such an amazing job. It seemed wrong that there were no funds to give the hard-working staff and volunteers a tea or coffee break.’

Ms Harris said: ‘It’s such a lovely gesture and we’re very grateful to Rotary for such a thoughtful gift.’
