A FLINTSHIRE woman who gave something back to local carers is hoping to enrol it out county-wide.

Jessica Evans, of Mold, fundraised last month to create pamper boxes for Hollybank care home in Shotton to thank to staff for their hard work during the coronavirus pandemic.

The community rallied behind her and over 20 pamper boxes were delivered to the care home where her nan resides.

She told the Leader: “We were all clapping for the NHS and carers and in supermarkets NHS staff were getting priority hours, but some carers weren’t.

“I felt like this was unfair, at the end of the day they were doing a job caring for the most vulnerable, so I decided to put pamper boxes together.

“They are working really hard through all of this; they deserve to have a pamper so I did some fundraising and a plea out on social media for any donations and everyone just rallied together.

“We had donations of items and donations of money, so I put them all together and delivered them, just to give them a boost because they deserve a rest.”

Jessica now hopes to roll this idea out to other care homes across Flintshire and is requesting the help from charitable organisations like Round Tables and Rotary Groups.

She added: “I am so thankful to the people that helped. I put an acknowledgement sheet on the box naming all the people who had donated.

“I even had people from as far away as down South donating ear ties for masks. Some were complete strangers as well.

“I want to put the feelers out there to approach different committees so this can be rolled out to other care homes.”
