Thank You Key Workers!

Thank You Key Workers!

In March when the lock down first started, John Lewis kindly donated lots of lovely Hotel Chocolat goodies! All that they asked was that, if possible, could they be gifted to key workers.

We decided to put some chocolates in the food parcels being delivered that week. This meant that as well as key supplies like bread and milk, urgent food parcel recipients also had a lovely surprise treat too!
Next, Teresa Barker, Our COO, came up with the great idea of asking our Age UK Sheffield team to nominate a key worker who they felt deserved a treat to say thank you for all their hard work.

We received lots of amazing nominations from across our team. People nominated nurses, health care staff working on Covid-19 wards, teachers, social workers, care home staff, GP staff, doctors, supermarket staff, volunteers, food bank workers and many more!

Reading all of the nominations was so heart-warming and it was amazing to find out more about the amazing commitment and work from so many people across the city, all putting their skills, knowledge and compassion to amazing use throughout the crisis.
We were lucky to be able to send every single person nominated a personal thank you letter and a much deserved yummy treat! Lots of the lovely people nominated kindly sent us a photo with their surprise treat too!

See all of the photos below, we hope they bring a smile to you just as they brought a big smile to us! A big thank you to all of the amazing people nominated and to John Lewis for kindly donating these lovely treats!
