It’s not been a good few weeks, but it’s already showing all the best of British!

The bulldog spirit is now starting to help us deal with a ‘once in a century’ crisis. I have been immensely proud of the way in which all the staff, (sorry I’m still a bit old fashioned, but at least everyone knows who I mean) have supported each other, our customers, and now local help groups while they are away from work. Then on Thursday night the nation came out of their houses and clapped for carers, it made the hairs on your neck stand up.

Most of us have downed tools, gone home, and left the experts to do their job and save lives, but no one is complaining. Yes we are worried, but now we are joined as one, we have the strength in numbers pulling together to overcome anything, our parents and grandparents did it, and now it’s our turn, and we will follow their example.

It’s not a time for sales, profits, share prices or odds, it’s a time to look after each other.

“Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For indeed, that’s all who ever have”
