Staff at an Arnold care home care have provided over 110 local key workers with a tasty breakfast in support fellow pandemic heroes.

The team from Coppice Lodge care home wanted to show their appreciation to all of their fellow local key and frontline workers so set up a unique breakfast delivery service to say thank you for all they do within the community.

The Coppice Lodge staff and residents were able to nominate their ‘pandemic heroes’ to receive a free breakfast grab-bag. With lots of suggestions, the team set to work putting together tasty breakfast bags which included bacon and sausage sandwiches as well as a touching thank you letter.

Within the first few weeks of deliveries, over 100 breakfasts had been delivered to people working in key roles across a multitude of sectors including the emergency services fire, ambulance and police units, paramedic teams, local GP practices, chemists and pharmacies, postal service, refuse collectors, funeral homes and even teachers at local primary schools.

The team also ensure that every single staff member at Coppice Lodge also received a hot breakfast roll too!

Deputy manager, Natalie Lowe, who played an instrumental role in delivering the breakfast 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 breakfast bags and it really goes to show how a little bit of kindness goes a long way’.

Home Manager, Samantha Kavanagh, 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 breakfast bags, and I am just pleased to know that maybe the reason a key worker is smiling in the morning 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 end of the pandemic together’.
