In a new feature we are contacting past students that are working in various Key Roles during the Covid -19 Pandemic. We want to celebrate their service, and thank them for their hard work.
Here’s an update from Nick Eaves:
I’m a truck driver for a local packaging company, which supply packaging to various companies. Normally there are 3 vehicles that run from our warehouse but due to the covid-19 outbreak, it is just me delivering now.
We travel to Wales, Shrewsbury, Telford and all round Staffordshire. It is a very strange time due to certain companies shutting and some are running with minimal staff on site.
The roads are empty and the shops where I would normally stop for refreshments are closed.
I have travelled to companies who have unfortunately lost colleagues to the virus and this really hits home and makes me realise just how dangerous these times are.
