Care South Thanks Staff with AFC Bournemouth Stadium Tour

Staff at Care South recently attended an exclusive event at the Vitality Stadium, organised in partnership with AFC Bournemouth’s (AFCB) Community Sports Trust. This was an opportunity for Care South to show its appreciation to frontline staff for all their hard work over the last two years.

The day started with refreshments on arrival, followed by a stadium tour with Steve Cuss, Head of Community Sports Trust at AFCB. The event was concluded with a fantastic surprise appearance from AFCB Chairman, Jeff Mostyn during afternoon tea and cake, who thanked Care South staff for their hard work and support during the pandemic.

Simon Bird, Care South’s Chief Executive, commented: “It was fantastic to welcome our staff to Vitality Stadium for an incredibly rewarding event. We had 35 members of staff in attendance who were nominated by Care Home Managers. We’d like to thank AFC Bournemouth Community Sports Trust for hosting this and another Care South staff event at the AFCB Women’s game against Chesham this month. We have worked closely together for some time now and I am grateful for the support they have provided in enabling us to say a big thank you to our staff who always work incredibly hard to provide the highest quality of care to residents.”

Amy Marks, Strategic Partnerships Manager at AFCB, added: “The staff event was a wonderful opportunity for our partner, Care South to show appreciation to its staff and receive a personal message from our chairman. We are delighted to share in more collaborative partnership opportunities and continue helping those in our community.”
