Rotary Club of Bishop's Stortford treats Covid-19 heroes




The Rotary Club of Bishop's Stortford has rewarded the town's coronavirus heroes with a sweet treat.

Members distributed bags of m&m's, the multi-coloured, button-shaped chocolates, to staff at GP practices, care homes and the ambulance station at Patmore Close in recognition of their efforts during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Rotary initiative began in Yorkshire when Hazel Hass did a deal with Mars and spread to London, where Tony Sharma, former Rotary District 1130 governor, began distributing sweets across Hertfordshire, Essex, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire – including to the Rotary Club of Bishop's Stortford.

Its members selected the Church Street, Parsonage and South Street surgeries, care homes Premier Court at Thorley and Conewood Manor in Dunmow Road, and East of England Ambulance Service crews for the reward.

Rotarian Peter Scarlett delivered to Church Street, where practice manager Sarah Carter took the opportunity to thank the club for its help volunteering at Bishop's Stortford Football Club during the town surgeries' coronavirus and flu vaccination programmes.
