Community support continues in response to Covid-19

Community support continues in response to Covid-19

22 April 2020

Woldingham’s support in helping our wider community tackle Covid-19 continued over the Easter holidays and into the spring term with donations to local groups and on-going production and distribution of visors. Thanks to the continued dedication of staff volunteers and a crowdfunding campaign, hundreds more visors have now been distributed to health and care workers.

Daniel Wahab, Head of Design and Technology, who is leading the project said:

‘As well as providing visors to local GPs, hospitals, care homes and community nurses, it’s been particularly good to have been able to respond to alumnae who have got in touch. We’ve provided visors to old girls Dr Patricia Brayden (St Catherine’s Hospice), Lucy Young (her Grandmother’s care home) and Emma Wright (her father’s GP practice in Buxted Medical Practice in East Sussex).’

And a special thank you to Woldingham's Chaplain Fr Gerry Devlin for delivering visors to Duchesne House in Roehampton, the care home of the Society of the Sacred Heart, on Wednesday 22 April. Fr Gerry and a group of Sixth Formers visited Duchesne House earlier in the school year and it’s lovely to be able to maintain our close links with residents and staff in Roehampton

We know our amazing Woldingham community around the world has been contributing positively to tackling Covid-19. We would love to hear more stories. Please share what you’ve been doing with or post on social media with #WonderfulWoldingham.
