Over the last 10 to 11 weeks the whole nation has come together to support our fantastic carers who are working long hours to ensure care home residents and those needing home care are protected during the coronavirus pandemic.
This is question is probably running through all of our minds this year. It’s maybe the last thing on our minds with everything that’s going on in the world right now. For over a hundred years, we have been celebrating the Dads, Grandads, Step-Dads and Uncles in our lives. Maybe now, we should treasure this day more than ever. On 21st June 2020, families across the UK will present gifts, cards, hugs and kisses to their fathers.
Bracelets Together was created by Alison Hargreaves and Allison Smethurst in April 2020 during their time in isolation. After being inspired by the Government’s NHS volunteering appeal, they decided to use their creative talents to produce a bespoke and unique bracelet range in support of the NHS, social care and key workers and the emergency services.
Working literally round the clock they overcame a lack of materials, shipping slots, labour shortages and time differences. In just over 4 weeks they brought the range from concept to market - a tremendous achievement that would take at least three months in normal times.
