11 Jan NHS workers thanked by Essex teenagers
Caring teenagers thanked key workers for their efforts with a donation of treats.
Four members of the Year 11 student leadership team at Maltings Academy, in Witham, delivered the hamper – containing treats such as hot chocolate, tea and coffee – to St George’s Witham Nursing Home.
The students – Brandon Whyton, Ronnie Jackson, Esha Ludhor and Kymberly Wilson – wanted to show a token of appreciation to the NHS workers during the pandemic.
Ronnie said: “It was lovely to visit the staff and provide them with a small token of appreciation for their hard work over the last two years. In the future, we would love to be able to give and do more.”
Home manager Derek Forteath said: “A big thank you to all involved for the kind donation delivered to St George’s. It was a very kind thought and will be greatly appreciated.”
Paul Ambrose, head of personal development at Maltings, said: “Part of my role is to help to develop and build the academy within the community and events like this will be a foundation on what we would love to achieve.
“As an academy, we are proud of our students and our student leadership team and this is just an example of their nature; thinking about others and a caring side they display daily.
“Moving forward, we would like to help out in many community projects, so the community can see what wonderful individuals we are lucky to have at Maltings Academy.”
