NEWS ROUNDUP: Duty of hair
A Leeds hairdresser of 25 years has swapped her scissors for sanitiser by becoming an NHS key worker after the national lockdown closed her salon for the third time.
Sue Carter only set up shop in 2018 but saw her progress halted with COVID-19 restrictions. The mum-of-three said she “needed to do something to help” which led her to sign up to work for the NHS supplies department, picking up and packing PPE orders before taking them to hospitals, health centres, and vaccination sites, including the LGI and Jimmy’s.
Sue heard about the role through her husband Jez who works in logistics for Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust and says the whole experience has given her an even greater respect for the NHS.
