Tesco “Little Help” voucher helps grandson treat care home staff and residents


Everyone at The Manor House in Little Weighton enjoyed some delicious treats thanks to the grandson of one of the residents.

David Bell received a voucher from his employer, Tesco, to thank him for his hard work and dedication during the coronavirus pandemic.  David used his Tesco “Little Help” voucher to buy cupcakes and biscuits for his Nan, Gladys Leaf, to share with other residents and particularly with the staff to express his gratitude for their wonderful care of her.

David said: “Nan couldn’t be in better hands and all the family are so grateful for the love and care she is receiving.  It’s really hard not being able to visit, but we understand that this is to keep everyone safe and well.

“I hope that the cakes and biscuits are enjoyed by everyone.  Tesco has acknowledged my work, and I wanted to share some of the award with the home to hopefully brighten their day and give them some sweet treats to enjoy.”

Leanne Hatch, manager at The Manor House, said: “It was so kind of David to think of us all and send in such lovely cakes and biscuits. Receiving treats like this is a wonderful boost for our team.

“Our families and the local community have given us such great support during the pandemic, and we’ve never felt alone even though we can’t welcome visitors.

“Our top priority is the health and happiness of our residents and to date, we have no reported cases of the virus in our homes. It’s testament to the commitment of our staff who have been working round the clock to make sure our residents have all the care and support they need.

“Thank you, David, for thinking of us!”
