Bluebird Care Leeds North teams up with The Myrtle to help vulnerable people

Bluebird Care Leeds North has teamed up with a Leeds pub to deliver care packages to vulnerable people.

Friday, 27th March 2020, 11:45 am

Staff at The Myrtle in Meanwood had made up the packages, which were then delivered by the Bluebird team to their customers and other local people after the Coronavirus outbreak meant many shops were too busy or with little stock.

The care packages were made up of essentials including toilet roll, kitchen roll, hand soap, gloves and washing machine tablets. They also contained some lovely items such as a pot of jam, a bottle of Guinness and a teacake, as well as sugar, tea and coffee. The packages were delivered around Meanwood on March 18.

The home care provider also managed to purchase toilet roll and hand wash when many supermarkets were out of stock.

While care assistants were on their regular home care visits, they gifted these essentials to customers who were not able to find them in stores.

Sheree Jenman, director of Bluebird Care Leeds North, said: “Many of our care assistants were worried about vulnerable people and older people, so we decided to do what we could to help.

“We delivered the care packages to those who needed them most and everybody was very grateful.

“Thank you to the wonderful Bluebird Care Leeds North team for always being so proactive in helping the local community.

“We would also like to thank The Myrtle for helping us with this initiative.”
