Extra Mile Winners
"We care that you care"
Week 10 Winners
Our winners for 10 are the team at St. Michael's Hospice in Hereford.They were nominated by Jean Fisher, who said:
"They are a great team - providing care and support to individuals and families at times of crisis, change and loss. In addition to the fantastic care team of staff and volunteers, we also have a wonderful team of fundraisers who help us raise 90% of our income each year! (This is as St. Michael's Hospice receives only 10% funding from government sources - all the rest comes from our local community and through the hard work of the fundraising team.)
We are about to move into a new building.Built through the support of our community it will offer, in addition to a new in-patient unit, therapy rooms physiotherapy gym for patients, etc. At last, there will also be a proper space for staff to relax…so the coffee machine would be very timely! Many thanks in advance for your consideration of this wonderful team."
Congratulations to a very deserving group of individuals!
Week 11 Winners
The last winner for our 2014 Extra Mile awards is the Paediatric Speech & Language Team, working for Anglian Community Enterprise (ACE) at Colchester Primary Care Centre. They were nominated by Amy Hickey, who said:
"The team are friendly, welcoming and incredibly dedicated. The work they undertake is unbelievable - giving children support and therapy to give them a voice and the confidence to use it - having suffered terrible illness, injury or traumatic circumstances. They still keep in touch people previously employed and treated.
I'm certain they would be absolutely thrilled to receive a lovely award for all their hard work!"
