CAPSTONE FOSTER CARE SOUTH EAST – FOSTER CARERS NEW YEAR & AWARDS PARTY 27 JANUARY 2017
Capstone Foster Care South East held its Foster Carer New Year & Awards Party at the Tower Hotel (on the bank of the Thames with fabulous views of the river and Tower Bridge) on 27 January 2017. This was the 5th time we had celebrated at the Tower Hotel.
For the 150+ foster carers and Capstone staff in attendance it was a memorable evening with a wonderfully relaxed and celebratory atmosphere, great food, and music that had everyone dancing the night away.
We were especially pleased to have Richard Compton-Burnett, CEO, and Alison Sargent, Group Operations Director, join us and give their support. Richard’s thank you to the foster carers for all their commitment, and hard work in providing such excellent care and supporting children and young people to achieve such brilliant outcomes, was greatly appreciated.
The highlight of the evening was Richard presenting awards to foster carers for long and loyal service (10+ years) and for making a contribution over and above for the young people they are looking after. As none of the foster carers knew they were going to receive an award, it was a fantastic surprise!
Well done and congratulations to Rizwana and Lloyd, Zufan and Tesfay, Meron and Sammy, Kelly and Victor, Kelly and Jason, and Sharon and David.
Many thanks to John Pilcher SSW who was our roving photographer for the evening, and to Mary Wheeler (Office Coordinator at Dartford office) without whom none of it would have happened and who worked tirelessly to make sure it was a huge success.Back to news
