Hardworking care teams receive tasty treats from local companies
Food hampers, chocolate treats and break time snacks from Greggs, Prep N Go, Morrisons, Dominos and local plumber James Holden, have all been gratefully received and eagerly consumed over the last few weeks!
Prep N Go Yorkshire donated 60 delicious meals for our hardworing team at our specialist nursing home, Staveley Birkleas, where we care for people with a wide range of disabilities.
We shared some of the 1,000 donuts Greggs donated with some of our fellow keyworkers and NHS workers at The Yorkshire Clinic, Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice, Synergy Leeds and the Fire Stations in Bingley and Rawdon, as well as with the Ambulance Service in Keighley and with a local children’s carehome in Bradford.
Local firefighter Matty from Rawdon Fire Station then raised £150 for the Dark Horse Theatre UK and Candlelighters charities by eating 26 of our shared Greggs donuts and then doing 26 crunches, 26 press ups and 26 chin ups!
