Sweet surprise: Milton Keynes developer provides treat for hospice staff
In recognition of Random Acts of Kindness Day (Friday 17th February), employees at Willen Hospice have received a sweet treat from local developer Barratt and David Wilson Homes.
Random Acts of Kindness Day encourages everyone to be kind, whether at school, work, or at home. The Foundation provides a number of ideas to be kind, including thanking a teacher, sharing a snack, or acknowledging someone who deserves praise.
To show its appreciation of the service the staff members at Willen Hospice provide, Barratt and David Wilson Homes donated 150 cupcakes for the team to enjoy.
Nigel Birch, Commercial Manager at Willen Hospice, said: “We are very grateful to Barratt and David Wilson Homes for thinking of Willen Hospice on Random Acts of Kindness Day.
“The staff at Willen Hospice works tirelessly every day to help support local families who have been affected by a life-limiting illnesses. Whether it’s at the start of their journey and we can support them to live better for longer, or at the end of their journey, where our patients can find comfort in knowing that Willen Hospice will be there for their families after they’ve gone. I hope these cupcakes will resemble how much our staff are appreciated and will put a smile on their faces.”
Willen Hospice has cared for patients for over 40 years, giving compassionate, personal end-of-life care at its in-patient unit and in people’s homes, helping patients to live well every day.
Simon Francis, Managing Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes Northampton, said: “Supporting local communities is absolutely key for us, and we wanted the staff at Willen Hospice to know we are thankful for their hard work.
“This small gesture of appreciation is to let our local heroes know that our community is grateful for everything they do.”
