The team at Broadway Halls Care Home in Dudley wanted to say a huge thank you to the ambulance teams who support them and arranged to take gifts on a visit to their West Midlands base. The home spoke to The Ambulance Staff Charity to see how best to contact the local teams.  Rebecca Long, General Manager at Broadway halls got her team together and decided to take cupcakes and sweets for the ambulance teams locally and 999 call centre staff.

Rebecca said:

“TASC is an incredible charity, we thought this was a great way to express our thanks and gratitude to the whole of the ambulance team and the people behind the frontline too.  The ambulance service are incredible and support our home and residents over the years so well.  We especially recognise the challenges and stresses they must have faced over recent months and continue to face daily.”

The team at Broadway Halls have given an open invitation for the ambulance staff to visit their home once covid restrictions are lifted.

Mr Anthony Marsh, Chief Executive of West Midlands Ambulance Trust wanted to pass on his “sincerest gratitude to everyone at Barchester Healthcare care home.”

Jasmin Rana, TASC’s Director of Income Generation & Supporter Engagement said:

“It was recently our 5th birthday and we’re looking back at the last five years and the impact our supporters have had on our work supporting the ambulance community. Together we have achieved some great outcomes for the UK’s lifesavers and we’re only just beginning.  We want to thank the wonderful staff at Broadway Halls who brought cakes and sweets for our ambulance teams.  During these unprecedented times we are so grateful for all the support and generosity shown to Ambulance staff.  We look forward to growing and strengthening our partnership with Barchester Healthcare in the future and want to thank all the residents of their care homes for the lovely thank you messages.”
