Jodie Manning is one of our Customer Service Executives and is a lockdown hero!
She has been volunteering as a first aider on the front line with St John Ambulance. Jodie has continued to work throughout lockdown, supporting our Customers in the CS Team. In her spare time though, she’s been busy assisting in personal care, spending time with patients and helping around the local hospitals to allow doctors and nurses to focus on treating seriously ill patients.
Jodie first started training in First Aid when she was just 13 and knew she wanted to put her skills to use when the pandemic hit.
She said: “It’s definitely daunting knowing how deadly this virus is, but knowing that I am easing the struggle for doctors and nurses 100 per cent outweighs the fear.”
She added: “Although this job is difficult, what I look forward to most is the relief in the faces of those suffering when I go over and say, ‘I’m a first aider, I’m here to help.”
Well done Jodie, we’re so proud of you.
