Blessed Trinity  IT and Computer teacher Mr Hussain is one of the half-a-million plus people who have now volunteered for the NHS.

Mr Hussain who lives in Brierfield, is currently working from home as he is self-isolating and is busy setting work for his pupils.

He already volunteers at the Inspiring Grace food bank in Nelson and decided to also offer his help to the NHS.

“I know many other teachers and staff have as well and I just wanted to do my bit,” said Mr Hussain.

“It’s such a crazy time at the moment but it keeps my hopes high that the country is coming together.

“I can’t get out and do deliveries but I saw the part about ringing vulnerable people and chatting to them to help them. I thought ‘I can do that.’

“For Inspiring Grace, I used to go delivering for them and help with logistics and now I am helping from home in other ways.”

Burnley born and bred, Mr Hussain has taught in Dubai, London and Rochdale before coming back ‘home’ in January to Blessed Trinity.

“As well as working with my pupils from home, I have been trying to help others and have written a piece on how to Home School 2020, during the lockdown period. Like everyone else, I want to help as much as I can.”
