On 12th December, it was time for Capstone to reward and celebrate the foster carers in the South West Region. A sumptuous Christmas lunch was enjoyed by our carers and staff to show Capstone’s appreciation of all the hard work and dedication to fostering our carers have provided the children this year. The event gave our Area manager, Scott Wickers, to present some long service awards to our carers who have completed five and ten years’ service dedicated to fostering with Capstone.
Jules has been fostering with Capstone for ten years and has provide a home, love and support for many young people over the years and we really value all of Jules hard work and commitment to her role. Here is what Jules had to say:
“Thank you so very much to you and Capstone for my flowers etc. I feel very valued again”
Anthony and Heather have been fostering with Capstone for five years now, again they have helped to support young people with complex needs very successfully. Heather said:
“I can’t believe it’s been five years! Where has the time gone, I thought is was three. Thank you to Capstone for our gifts we’re so happy”.
Our carers really enjoyed the lunch and appreciated being valued by the Capstone team for all they do. Here is what another carer had to say about the event:
“We just wanted to thank you and Capstone for such a lovely Christmas lunch. Thank you also for the Christmas tree with biscuits, can’t wait for Christmas to open them! We wish you and everyone at Capstone a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!”
As well as celebrating the long service of carers, we are delighted to celebrate the long service of staff including Maggie Andrews, who has completed 10 years’ service with Capstone. Maggie is a finance officer in the Devon office who facilicates the important role of Carer payments and contracts with local authorities.
