Rowan and Revd Scott Patterson, have launched 'Twin My Vaccine', a campaign to help raise funds for communities across the world who are struggling to vaccinate their population against Covid 19 and whose infrastructure in places may not even include basic refrigeration.
They've set up a page to direct funds to UNICEF's COVAX programme. The couple hoped to raise around a thousand pounds, but they've already reached more than £55,000. The amount they raise will also be boosted by gift aid.
Their campaign has been supported by the local community and Curry Rivel Church School is planning to hold a mufti day to help raise funds too.
Rowan and Scott said: "We're delighted that our parents and friends are beginning to be vaccinated against Covid-19 and it's great that in the UK this is freely available on the NHS. But many of us could have afforded to buy the vaccine if we'd needed to and there are countries which cannot afford to vaccinate their people at all. UNICEF's coronavirus/COVAX campaign will deliver vaccines to some of the poorest countries in the world."
