Jane Earley MARLA MNAE, of sales and letting agency, Robinson Reade in Hampshire, is a true Local Hero.
Jane, who owns the agency on the ‘Strawberry Coast’ is a Community First Responder for South Central Ambulance Service and was given the award by the Mayor of Winchester for her volunteering through the first lockdown.
The citation on the back of the certificates reads, “At the start of lockdown, Bishops Waltham Responders lost 50 per cent of their volunteers owing to age and medical restrictions.
“The remaining five continued to provide emergency medical cover for the residents of Bishops Waltham and surrounding area for 98 per cent of the time, attending 143 incidents up to the end of May. They wore the same PPE and worked under the same stressful conditions as ambulance crews.”
