Christmas arrives early for Shropshire care staff
Christmas has arrived early in Shropshire after a leading care provider gifted hundreds of festive goody bags to its employees.
Coverage Care Services, which operates 12 homes across the county and employs around 1,000 people, organised for the special deliveries to take place this week.
Sam Woosnam, HR director for the company, said: “It’s been an absolute pleasure to be able to treat all our employees this Christmas as a way of saying a big thank you to them for their continued hard work.
“We are for very fortunate to have such a professional and dedicated team of individuals working across our homes and we hope that they enjoy their gifts.”
Coverage Care has teamed up with Beth Heath from The Shropshire Hamper Company to supply the festive goody bags which include gifts from local makers and producers.
They were delivered to care homes and handed out to individuals this week. In addition, employees were also treated to a Love2Shop voucher for use at various high street stores.
The festive investment comes not long after Coverage Care awarded an interim pay rise to employees in order to support them with rising household bills.
Sam added: “Our employees are our biggest asset, and they consistently go above and beyond in everything they do to ensure that our residents receive the level of care they so richly deserve.
“With the cost-of-living crisis continuing to impact many people, we are doing as much as we can to ensure our employees feel valued, rewarded and happy and our latest investment into these festive goody bags is another way for us to be able to demonstrate our thanks for their continued support.”
Beth Heath, director of the Shropshire Hamper Company, said she was thrilled that Coverage Care Services had chosen them to be their gift supplier this Christmas.
She said: “Having such a large company as Coverage Care Services choose to support us and local producers means that they have also helped to support the local economy hugely and helped spread the all-important buy-local message.
“We hope all the staff enjoy their goody bags and we wish everyone at Coverage Care a very healthy and restful Christmas.” Coverage Care Services operates homes right across Shropshire and it is always on the lookout for new people to strengthen its team.
