Local care company, Bluebird Care Shropshire, has rewarded their staff and their children with care packages and colouring pages to thank them for their continued hard work during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Bluebird Care Shropshire, located in Bayston hill, and operating all around Shropshire and Oswestry, sent colouring pages and thank you notes to the children of their Care staff, to let them know how hard their parents work. Amongst the colouring pages was a “Message from Claire” the director of Care at Bluebird Care Shropshire, also thanking the children for staying home and staying safe.


Claire Flavell, director of Care at Bluebird Care had this to say about her colourful message:

I want to tell the children that they have a very special mum or dad; when he or she goes out to work they are helping people to live safe in their own home, and I am very proud to be able to say I work with them.”


“I thought the children might like to colour in something to show their parents how special they are and to help me say ‘thank you’ for everything they are doing. I also want to say a big ‘thank you’ for staying home and keeping safe too.”


That’s not all, however. Sammie Milton, who works in Bluebird Care’s Main office, took further steps to thank the staff by putting together a “care package” for each and every care assistant. Each package includes a facemask, some sweeties, and a “Thank you” bracelet.


Sammie Milton, Assistant to the director of care at Bluebird Care Shropshire said:

We want to make sure that every single care assistant who is going above and beyond during these extraordinary times knows just how much we appreciate and value their hard work.”


“This is an incredibly challenging and stressful time for all of us. But at a time when lots of people are staying home to stay safe, many of our staff members are out in the community, doing absolutely essential work to ensure each customer is receiving the care they require.”


Ian Barnes, Director of Bluebird Care Shropshire said:


We feel that there has never been a better time to recognise the care assistants in our community and we ask everybody to say a ‘Big Thank You’ and show your support to all of them!”
