Goody bags for key workers

Shropshire Festivals have been commissioned by Marches Care to deliver 110 personalised goody bags to all the staff at The Uplands in Shrewsbury.

The family-run nursing and dementia care home wanted to show their appreciation to their key workers, who are taking care of residents during the current pandemic. The personalised bags contained products from across the Marches, and featured the caption: ‘Not all heroes wear capes’.

Chairman of the care home, Mandy Thorn MBE, said that they were the perfect way to say thank you to her hardworking team. 

“I was so grateful to Shropshire Festivals for producing these gorgeous bags. Within a week of my initial conversation with them, 110 personalised goody bags had been designed, produced, packed and delivered – which is incredible! We wanted to bring a smile to our amazing staff who are working so hard in such difficult circumstances. They are all so special and we can never thank them enough.”

The staff are reported to be blown away by the gesture from Marches Care, with one of the carers saying: “It is days like this that I am so proud to wear this uniform.”

Beth Heath, for Shropshire Festivals, said that they were thrilled to be tasked with the job of creating 110 bags. “With all of our events since April postponed, we have been expanding our corporate hospitality offering, and this was a fantastic project to take on.

"It was wonderful to bring together products from producers who exhibit with us at the Shrewsbury Food Festival, to support their businesses at this time as well. We are so pleased the staff enjoyed the goody bags. If any businesses out there want a similar service we would love to get involved.”
