Hand-made hampers with love to mark International Foster Carer Appreciation Day

Archived: Posted October 21, 2015

Foster carers received handmade hampers from our Western team to show our appreciation of the great work they doHere in FCA’s Western region we love to show how much we value our carers, so to mark International Foster Carer Appreciation Day we decided to make hampers for all of our carers and hand deliver them to their houses. Who wouldn’t like a hand delivered hamper that was filled with lots of lovely goodies we thought!

Monday morning came and we began putting the baskets out in rows to start a relay of packing, whilst trying not to eat the scones. Luckily we managed to hold back! We had a full fun day putting them together and everyone got involved. All of our hampers were made by hand, with love and appreciation for what our foster carers do.

On the day itself, Western staff stepped away from their daily duties to take part in hand delivering the baskets, creating a personal touch which was gratefully received by our foster carers.

We were overwhelmed by how well received the hampers were, with emails saying: “Thank you for the hamper, we are all enjoying the goodies!” and “I would just like to take this opportunity in thanking ALL of you for such a perfect gift, it was very much appreciated and enjoyed! Thank you”. We also had phone calls into the office to pass on their thanks.

It was a great day and we are already starting to plan what we will do for next year!
