Over the past few weeks we have been overwhelmed by the support and generosity of our local community during this difficult time.
Although everyone's lives are not quite normal at the minute, people have still been kind enough to keep donating and offering their support. Over the past week we have received cheques and online donations, as well as Easter eggs for our young carers, and masks for our carer support workers, so we would like to thank everyone who has been kind enough to offer their support during this time.
Firstly, we would like to give a special mention to the wonderful Jean McAleer. Jean very generously has donated some handmade, resuable face masks for our carers who wanted to take extra precautions whilst delivering their usual care in the community.
We would also like to give a special mention to Junior Achievement Isle of Man who have very kindly donated 100 of their Harry Potter activity packs to our Young Carers project. We can't wait to deliver them to the children over the next few weeks!
Another person we would like to thank is Jenny Atkinson who very kindly donated some old stamps she had. This is a huge help to us in keeping admin costs down so we would like to thank Jenny for her generosity.
Finally, we would like to thank some local businesses and organisations who have allowed us to keep some normality to our services during this difficult time and gone out of their way to help us. So a huge thanks to Isle of Man Post Office, Manx Technology Group, Douglas Borough Council, Isle of Man Government, Manx Telecom, Sure, Manx Gas, Manx Utilities, Cannon Hygiene Manx, WDS Limited, Typhoon House, Vannin Officepoint, Promenade Shirts & Embroidery, Eye-Spy Security, Rossborough Insurance, Robinson's, Quilter International and Mainstream Marketing & Communications.
We are extremely grateful to people like Jean and Jenny, and our local community for their support during these unprecedented times. It is wonderful to know that we have so many brilliant people looking out for our local carers, and we are feeling very proud to be part of such a strong community.
