Haverhill-based Matilda Rose Action Squad teams up with Star Cars to form 'vaccine transport service'




A Haverhill-based group of volunteers who formed to support the elderly and vulnerable through the pandemic has teamed up with a nearby cab firm to form a 'vaccine transport service'.

The Matilda Rose Action Squad, brainchild of Jamie Nunn who also owns Matilda-Rose Nails & Beauty in the town, has partnered with Star Cars to provide free transport to vaccine appointments for those who are otherwise unable to get there.

The Action Squad, which has been delivering medicines, food stuffs and making calls to the elderly and vulnerable since last March, will offer five of their own volunteers and Star Cars have promised cars and drivers as well.

Jamie, who also used to be head of nails on ITV show The X Factor, said Star Cars company owner Steve Hearne had been saying he wanted to do something to help out.

"To be fair they've been amazing," Jamie said.

"Steve has said throughout this he wanted to be able to do something to help out the community and give something back."

Jamie said the appeal has already gained some traction online with their original Facebook post being shared over a hundred times and lots of people phoning in to say they want to use the service.
