Tudor Primary School is raising money to support the efforts of staff and volunteers at the Covid vaccination centre in Hemel Hempstead.

Friends of Tudor, the PTA for Tudor Primary School in Hemel Hempstead, wanted to do something to support the army of doctors, nurses and volunteers who are working at the vaccine centre on Maxted Road.

They have set up a fundraising page to raise money to provide them with drinks and snacks, they have already raised £1,245, beating their target of £1,000.

During the first lockdown the school delivered food packages, made up of donations, to vulnerable families and the elderly.

A spokesperson for Tudor Primary School said: "Being an integral part of the local community is something that we feel very strongly about at Tudor Primary School even more so in the last 12 months.

"The food packages had such a positive impact that as soon as the opportunity arose for us to support the Maxted Road vaccine centre, we immediately set up a gofundme page and spread the word amongst our fantastic family community and encouraged everybody to spread the word.

"Within a few weeks we had smashed our £1000 target and began delivering snacks and treats to the army of volunteers to keep their moral going.

"All of the fundraising events we run here at Tudor Primary School are done with the purpose of bringing our local neighbourhoods together and we are incredibly fortunate to have a very supportive network of families. We would like to extend our thanks to them, because without their commitment things like this just don’t happen.

"Designated Tudor Primary School staff are purchasing the food items with the funds raised and personally delivering them to the vaccine centre."
