Our amazing Reigatians in action
With so many former students pursuing careers in medicine, there’s little wonder that we have a substantial number of Reigatians working on the front line during this pandemic. RGS also instils a sense of responsibility and moral purpose in individuals, which has never been more evident, with our amazing community pulling together like never before. Thank you one and all!
To give our amazing NHS and other front line workers some moral support, we’ve been posting social shout-outs on Facebook! Please click on the links below to read each story and to add your own messages of support.
We’ve also put together a short video, which you can watch here.
“I work at Roseacre Care Home in Banstead and I’ve been there about a year and a half although I did far fewer shifts than I am at the moment. I work as a kitchen porter, preparing food and cleaning the kitchen/dining room. As all of the residents are socially distancing in their rooms at the moment, we have more work to do with preparing trays for all of them at each meal. I’m working much more than during term time at about 50 hours per week, but it’s all to help out so I’m happy to do it. I am planning to take a gap year, continuing work at the care home, followed by a Human Biology degree at university then I’d like to join the Royal Navy. I’m in the Navy section of the CCF at the moment and I throughly enjoy it and I want to make that my career.”
Keep the nominations coming!
If you know anyone else working on the front line, please send their name (maiden and married where relevant), details of where they work (and the role they undertake) and a photo to email@example.com.
Stay safe everyone. ♥
