Specialist housing and care provider Blackwood has purchased £90 Aldi vouchers for social care staff in Ayrshire working on the frontline of coronavirus.

Each of Blackwood’s 284 care staff across the country received a £90 Aldi voucher to help with their essential shopping, as a token of the appreciation for their work during the pandemic.

The donation from Blackwood is part of its continuing #ImInAwe campaign which is dedicated to shining a light on the important frontline role local care employees are playing.

Fanchea Kelly, Blackwood Chief Executive, said: “We’re so immensely proud of all of our staff who have continued to provide excellent care to all of our customers during a difficult time.

“The vouchers are a token of our appreciation for our staff. They are a way of recognising the hard work our carers do, and saying thank you to everyone for continuing to inspire us and keep our staff and customers safe.

“One of the reasons Aldi was chosen was its range of supermarkets across the country and their dedicated opening hours for care staff.”
