The Lincolnshire Care Association, NHS Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group and Lincolnshire County Council have recognised the county’s hardworking care home managers with a special gift.
Along with a small team of volunteers from Country Court Care, Home from Home Care, Age UK Lincoln and South Lincolnshire and Forget Me Not Care, the organisations delivered gift bags containing local food items to 288 registered managers across the county to demonstrate their continued support as we begin to return to normality.
The volunteers shopped locally and filled the gift bags with tasty treats from businesses, including Pipers Crisps, Hames, Hawkens Gingerbread, Belvoir Farms, The Lincoln Tea and Coffee Company, Jenny’s Jams of Lincoln and Pocklington’s Bakery and handed them out at care homes on the 20-21 July.
Melanie Weatherley MBE, Chair of the Lincolnshire Care Association, said “Registered managers and care workers have worked incredibly hard to keep older and vulnerable people safe and supported during the pandemic. Their commitment and compassion deserve to be celebrated, so we’re proud to thank the teams with gift bags filled with local goodies.
“As lockdown eases, we must remember that registered managers and their teams across the county will continue to go above and beyond to provide excellent care, and we will continue to support the teams through this ever-changing landscape.”
