There isn't much Sue Haigh hasn't volunteered for.
From delivering Meals on Wheels to sorting reading glasses for the Fred Hollows Foundation, helping with the Santa Parade, wrapping Christmas presents at malls, to a four-year stint as a Blue Coat at Auckland Airport giving helpful advice to travellers - Haigh has done it all.
Now the 61-year-old spends her day wind, rain or shine at New Zealand's largest drive-through vaccination site by Auckland Airport.
"I loved helping at the airport as a Blue Coat so it is nice to be back near the same airport encouraging people to get vaccinated," Haigh said.
"We run an amazing service out here with 12 tunnels open and we'd love to see more people coming out - it's so quick and easy."
Sue Haigh is today's Lockdown Hero.
The site Haigh works at has been administering an average of 3,100 vaccines a day but has the capacity to do double that.
"It is such an easy way to get vaccinated especially for those who are a bit nervous," Haigh said.
From drive-in to drive-out the whole process for vaccination was currently less than 30 minutes - with no need to leave the comfort of your car.
It was a great option for younger people, and people with high sensitivities, autism, or a fear of needles she said.
"We had a guy come in with a full arm tattoo but he was nervous the vaccination was going to hurt. Then he found it didn't hurt at all," Haigh said.
"It's so quick people are waiting for the pain and they're surprised when they're told it's all over."
Haigh started volunteering about 40 years ago, saying "help the community" was her mantra.
Her role at the drive-through service on Verrisimo Drive, near Auckland Airport, was to encourage people to scan a QR code to go in the draw for prizes.
A new campaign, led by Auckland Airport, "Doing it for each other" meant people getting vaccinated could scan a QR code to vote for a South Auckland school of their choice to receive one of three $20,000 grants which included $10,000 cash and $10,000 of products from Warehouse Stationery.
There were also daily prizes including smartphones, whiteware appliances, hotel accommodation, pounamu pendants and $42,000 in $100 gift card vouchers.
Haigh said being protected from Covid-19 should be incentive enough but the prizes were a great bonus.
