Staff at The Oaks in Newtown have taken part in a national campaign to highlight all the good work being done by care homes.

The campaign, called ‘Feeding Heroes’, is being run by Care Home Life and aims to #PassOnSomeCheer to over 9,000 social care workers during lockdown. The motive behind the campaign is to shed a positive light on the fantastic work done by care home staff, and to lift the spirits of care workers by providing them with a thoughtful free lunch.

Debbie Smith of Care Home Life said: “We’re committed to supporting care homes, care workers and their residents as best as we possibly can throughout this crisis.”

The Oaks received 26 freshly pre-packed lunchboxes for its members of staff as a way of recognising their devotion to residents.

Jennifer Roberts, Registered Manager of The Oaks, said her team were thrilled that the home took part in the initiative.

She said: “We are so proud of our staff, who always go the extra mile for the residents here at The Oaks. The Feeding Heroes campaign is a lovely way of recognising the hard work and dedication of all our workers during this difficult time.”

The campaign has reached thousands of individuals and has brought a smile to those working tirelessly to support care home residents across the country.
