On 20 January 2021, 100-year-old, Major Ted Hunt, received his Coronavirus vaccination

On 20 January Lancing resident, Major Ted Hunt was taken to Lancing Parish Hall by The Taxi Charity for Military Veterans for his Coronavirus injection.



London Black Cabbie and volunteer for the Taxi Charity Mike Hughes, took Major Ted, accompanied by his daughter in law Linda Hunt, for his vaccination.

Major Ted was welcomed at Lancing Parish Hall by Tim Loughton MP for East Worthing and Shoreham.

Mr Loughton, said, “It was an honour to meet Major Ted at the vaccination centre in Lancing, fresh from having his jab. He said to refuse a vaccine was like crossing the road without looking both ways first – I don’t think I could put it better myself! Fantastic to meet him and to witness the brilliant hard work of everyone involved with the vaccine rollout. I’m incredibly grateful to ‘The Taxi Charity for Military Veterans’ for arranging this visit for Major Ted and countless other veterans. Thank you”
