JVN supports the national vaccine rollout programme, so we need your help!
JVN are joining in the urgent national effort to help deliver the vaccine programme by its deadline of the end of this year. That’s only two weeks away, and hundreds of thousands of people are still waiting for their vaccines. We are deploying our resources and networks to support organisations on the ground, delivering the programme.

Nicky Goldman, CEO of JVN, added, “Since the end of furlough, and the resumption of our normal routines, the vaccination depots find themselves desperately short of volunteers. That’s why JVN is doing everything it can to promote these opportunities to get involved in one of the country’s biggest public health initiatives ever.” The NHS has announced it’s looking for an extra 2000 volunteers per day, whilst Hertfordshire are looking to increase their volunteers from 350 to 850 people per day. Whether you are available for a single shift, or on an ongoing basis, your contribution will be greatly valued.

For details on how to apply to London, Hertfordshire and Manchester-based and national volunteering opportunities, please follow the link to their website jvn.org.uk/vaccine JVN is a charity whose purpose is connecting volunteers to organisations for placement in suitable voluntary positions.

An announcement from Maccabi GB Southern Football League Chairman, David Wolff
This coming Sunday sees the final fixture list of the year with Three Cyril Anekstein and One Peter Morrison Cup ties.
The new Covid variant has already postponed two fixtures and these could well be more.
The league is reviewing each case  as it arises and hope to take a sensible approach.
I do hope that no one tries to call off games under false pretences.
The Management Committee met last Monday and approved a Social Media policy that has been sent to all our teams. The Football Association have powers to charge teams and individuals who exceed the acceptable parameters.
I hope you all have a pleasant festive season and a happy new year.
