OV Vaccine Volunteer

Although OV Lucy Lewis (W 02-09) is usually found living and working in Madrid, the pandemic brought her back home to Worcester to support her family in these difficult times. Lucy recently started volunteering for the Covid-19 vaccine programme in Worcester and here’s why, in her own words:

“I am an independent conference interpreter and Covid has generated a lot of work for me in the last year as businesses adapt to current difficulties. I wanted to volunteer on the vaccination programme because it wouldn’t feel right using a crisis in which many people have lost their jobs and livelihoods to grow my business, and not put anything back in return. I wanted to be part of the solution.

“It has been a pleasure to work alongside Rosie Shearburn (Hon OV), my A-Level Spanish teacher, at the clinics, and to fill her in on what I’ve been doing since leaving King’s. The volunteering experience has been rewarding and enriching, and I will continue to support the clinics for as long as I am still in Worcester.”

Thank you to Lucy for sharing her experiences during these times.

If you have been involved with volunteering for Covid vaccines or testing and would like to share your story with us, we would love to hear from you.
