Borough foster carers thanked by Barnardo's
9:00am Saturday 19th October 2013 in News
FOSTER carers who look after for some of the borough’s most disadvantaged children, were given a special thank you from Barnardo’s.
They were treated to an all expenses paid mini spa break at the Copthorne Hotel, Merry Hill, recently, so they could relax and unwind.
Staff at the charity’s Dudley-based West Midlands Family Placement service organised the event as a reward for their commitment and dedication and the Copthorne offered their facilities for the day free of charge.
The Mayor of Dudley, councillor Alan Finch took time out of his busy schedule to visit them for lunch and even helped out with a few beauty treatments.
This was the latest in a series of events and activities aimed at supporting local foster carers who provide homes for children in need.
Simone Booth, leisure and spa manager at the hotel, said: “It’s a privilege to continue our partnership with Barnardo’s and offer the carers who give so much to the community a little ‘me time’ back by allowing them use of our fabulous pool and spa facilities.”
Information evenings for anyone interested in fostering and adoption will be held by the charity at Trinity House, Trinity Road, Dudley, on Monday October 21and November 18 from 6.45pm to 9pm.
To book a place, call 01384 458585.
