The Liverpool based care team wanted to show their appreciation to all of their fellow local key and frontline workers, landing on a unique lunchtime delivery initiative to say thank you for all they do within the community.
The care team and residents were able to nominate their ‘pandemic heroes’ to receive a free lunch grab-bag. With lots of suggestions, the team set to work putting together tasty lunch bags which included sandwiches and some extra tasty treats such as homemade brownies, cookies and scones as well as a touching thank you letter.
So far, the team have delivered lunches to people working in key roles across a multitude of sectors including local GP practices, chemists and pharmacies, nursery teams and even to a local florist who gifted the team over 25 bunches of daffodils to hand out residents and spread joy!
Care Manager, Michelle Lightfoot, who played an instrumental role in delivering the lunch bags around the community said, ‘During my deliveries, I met some truly inspirational people who have really kept the community going over the course of the pandemic. Everyone was so grateful for their surprise lunch and it really goes to show how a little bit of kindness goes a long way’.
Home Manager, Aaron Flitcroft, said, ‘I am so proud of my team, the way that they continue to prioritise the needs of others is truly inspiring. I have received so much positive feedback about our lunch deliveries, and I am just pleased to know that maybe the reason a key worker is smiling is because of our team! I am really looking forward to the day we can invite the community back into our home and celebrate the lifting of restrictions together’.
