Three Cheers For Thame Group Crowned ‘Local Heroes’ By Care Home

A Thame organisation has been named the winner of a care home’s ‘Local Heroes’ competition.

Thame Good Neighbour Scheme, which offers services to those in the community who need additional help and support, was awarded the top prize of £500 by the team at Care UK’s Cuttlebrook Hall, on Stock Road.

The organisation is led primarily by volunteers from the local area who are all driven by a passion to give something back to their community. The volunteers offer support with a variety of tasks which may be difficult for some local people, including transport, shopping, looking after pets, and gardening, as well as befriending services.

Judges were impressed by the efforts of the group’s volunteers, who give up their time to promote involvement and wellbeing for the local community

Jane Webster, Co-Ordinator at Thame Good Neighbour Scheme, said: “I’m incredibly proud of the amazing work our volunteers do – it’s fantastic to have their hard work recognised and be called ‘local heroes’. I’d like to extend a big thank you to the whole team at Thame Good Neighbour Scheme, as well as to Cuttlebrook Hall for this wonderful recognition!”

Alana Corr, Home Manager at Cuttlebrook Hall, said: “We’re thrilled to have crowned Thame Good Neighbour Scheme as the winners of our ‘Local Heroes’ competition to help celebrate the opening of our new care home.

“Supporting people to remain independent is an ethos we share with Thame Good Neighbour Scheme, and the work they do as an organisation is invaluable to the local community who benefit from the service of the volunteers, so we’re pleased to reward the group’s efforts – well done to our winners!”
