A special thank you gift will be making its way to key workers across the county next week.

Nestle delivered 3000 Easter eggs to Worcestershire County Council to be distributed to care workers and NHS staff as a huge thank you for continuing to provide quality services during the Coronavirus outbreak.

Most of the Easter eggs will be delivered to adult care homes for staff who have been working tirelessly over recent weeks.

Councillor Lucy Hodgson, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Communities said: “We’re hugely grateful to Nestle for donating these Easter eggs for us to distribute to important workers in Worcestershire. Our social workers, staff in care homes and NHS staff are vital for delivering important services. Their hard work during the pandemic has been impressive and they are hugely appreciated. This is just a little way we can say thank you.”

Katya Simmons, Nestlé Professional UK & Ireland Managing Director for Nestle added: “We were delighted to be able to donate these products as a way of saying thank you, to all the amazing frontline staff and key workers in Worcestershire, for their awesome work during this very difficult time.”

A few hundred eggs will be delivered to Tenbury Wells Hospital for NHS staff, and 100 or so will go to Worcestershire children’s homes distributed by Worcestershire Children First

The remainder of the eggs will be distributed in food parcels that are requested through the Here 2 Help programme, set up by Worcestershire County Council for those in need.
