South Wales shows appreciation for wonderful foster carers

Archived: Posted October 27, 2015

In South Wales we celebrated International Foster Carer Appreciation Day with parties for our foster carers at our Swansea and Cardiff offices.

A teaser email was sent to all of our carers asking then to look out for their postman with a very special invitation.  It obviously worked as 34 carers attended both events in total!

A special hot chocolate for our foster carers in South WalesOn arrival, our carers were waited on hand and foot by FCA staff, and were offered mugs of luxury hot chocolate with all the added extras of squirty cream, marshmallows, cream wafers, and topped off with chocolate sprinkles. Once the drinks were served we all entered the main room which had been decorated with balloons, and beautifully set tables full of cake!

In large letters on the projector it stated that “today was a special day”, and once seated, our Regional Manager Ruchi gave a wonderful speech and explained what the day was all about. A video was also played starring the staff at FCA Cymru South saying a big thank you to all our foster carers.

Each foster family was giving a beautiful decorated bag which included a card, candle, chocolates, key ring, badge and a gift card.

Our foster carers told us how pleased they were that they’d been recognised in this way. One of the emails we received following the event read: “Dear all, thank you for today and well done. We always feel appreciated by FCA, and you all, but thank you again.”
