Dearne Valley Webhelp Team Shares Bonuses With Elderly Locals

News
6th February 2020

The team was awarded £500, but instead of simply dividing the winnings, decided to do something different …

When Webhelp’s Dearne Valley team was awarded £500 last week for going above and beyond, the small team of eight devised a plan to donate half of the money to a local care home. The team chose to give £200 directly to the home and then spent the remaining £50 on 12 bottles of wine and 10 bags of chocolates for the residents.

When the team arrived, they wheeled the goodies in and handed them out to delighted residents directly as an icebreaker before diving into a quiz game – asking residents to participate by giving their best bits of life advice.

Some favourites from the day included:

Dorothy, 98, said: “Look after yourself as no one else will.”

Sue, 64, said: “Be happy.”

Irene, who didn’t want to reveal her age being a true lady, said, “Live, love and laugh.”

Marian, 98, said: “Listen devoutly.”

Marie, also 98, rounded off with: “Love your family.”

After such a great time with the residents, the Dearne Valley Webhelp team plans to use any money left over to fill a hamper with cards, colouring books and pens for the residents and are already planning another visit to the home again in three months’ time. It’s the team’s hope to make such visits a regular occurrence.

Commenting on his team’s fantastic gesture, Richard Cunnningham, Webhelp Head of Site at Dearne Valley said:

“We are truly proud to see the generosity of the Webhelp team in Dearne Valley. At Webhelp, we believe in creating opportunities for our people to give back to society and so aren’t surprised to see these amazing levels of kindness.”
