‘Christmas Caring Trees’ to shine bright for carers across the UK

Spreading Cheer

Live-in care provider Promedica24 and the Care Workers’ Charity (CWC) have launched the inaugural ‘Cards for Carers’ campaign to share messages of thanks for care workers in public places across the UK.

The partners are encouraging local communities to leave messages of thanks and support for care workers and family members who act as carers to their loved ones.

Members of the public can find ‘Christmas Caring Trees’ placed in several locations up and down the country. Each of them is decorated with Christmas cards for people to write on them, leaving messages and words of support for care workers.

The aim of the initiative is to show carers how appreciated and valued they are by the British public and those who draw on their support.  

Paula Beaney, quality assurance director at Promedica24, commented on the campaign: “Care workers have worked tirelessly over the last 18 months, providing essential support and companionship for those most at risk from the virus. With Christmas coming up, we wanted to show carers how appreciated they are by encouraging members of the public to share messages of thanks and support.”

A number of local businesses and community groups have pledged their support by hosting Christmas trees in their stores to help spread cheer in their local communities.

Those unable to visit a Christmas tree can leave a message of thanks or support using #CardsForCarers on social media. All messages will be collated by Promedica24 and the CWC and shared in the run-up to Christmas.

Beaney added: “If we can play even a small part in spreading some festive cheer this year, that’s an opportunity we’re keen to grasp with both hands. There are many ways to get involved in our campaign, including visiting one of our Caring Tree areas to leave a hand-written message, following our campaign on social media using #CardsForCarers, or donating online to The Care Workers’ Charity to support the millions of care workers and carers across the country.”

Promedica24 and The Care Workers’ Charity will be sharing stories of the life-changing difference care workers make in people’s lives and highlighting the value they bring to those who draw on their support.
