AN Ealing man was lauded for going above and beyond by volunteering to help people in his community stay safe and well. 

When the call came for people to volunteer as NHS Volunteer Responders at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, David Goring-Morris, 62, stepped forward. 

He started by delivering shopping and prescriptions to isolated and vulnerable people. 

Later, when the vaccination programme launched, David signed up as a steward. 

After completing 100 tasks as a steward and community response volunteer, David has now been welcomed by NHS England and the Royal Voluntary Service into the 100 Club.

The club was created to say thank-you to responders who have completed 100 or more volunteer shifts. 

David said: "I have met some brilliant people along the way. I will be continuing for as long as I'm needed as it’s one of the most rewarding things I have ever done." 

Catherine Johnstone, CEO of the Royal Voluntary Service, said: “Volunteers like David are invaluable in helping the NHS deliver the biggest vaccination programme in its history.”
