Thanks for caring at Christmas


Posted on December 20th, by geoff in Caring Times. Comments Off on Thanks for caring at Christmas

A national care group campaigning to highlight the caring heroes of the sector is extending a special thank you to those working at Christmas.

The ‘spare a thought’ message comes from the Springhill Care Group to employees throughout the industry working through Christmas.

Donna Briggs, managing director of Springhill Care Group, said that, while most of us will be enjoying time with our family, many would be working in some form of capacity to ensure the care they offer is uninterrupted and that those most vulnerable are looked after and can enjoy this time themselves

“As part of our Caring Heroes campaign, we want to change the culture in the care industry to make those working in it proud of the good work they do throughout the year,” said Donna.

The care group operates a range of activities on behalf of employees including healthy menu cards detailing easy and affordable recipes, and providing fresh fruit to encourage healthy eating. To express support for its campaign, Springhill Care is asking people to tell their stories on Twitter using the hashtag #caringheroes
