Firstly, thank you to all those who donated prizes for the MacMillan Cancer Charity Raffle and to those who purchased tickets.
We managed to raise just over £200, which the company has now doubled! What a wonderful Christmas present for MacMillan Cancer Research.
Secondly, we would like to say merry Christmas to all of the staff at Beech Tree. And to thank you all for the hard work you have done and continue to do. Even when your eye lids have become to heavy to tape open you continue to plough on, you don't have time to be ill, or you feel guilty if you are, you can't sleep if you know someone has only had a biscuit for dinner or lost the glasses on their head. You are the both the hope and happiness for many, and we thank you.

How can I stay healthy in winter?
Cold temperatures can raise blood pressure and increase the risk of flu and other lung-related problems. Our blood pressure takes longer to return to normal, and this can put you at greater risk of a heart attack or stroke. That’s why it’s so important to look after yourself in the winter.

We are helping spread awareness against scams protecting those who may be at risk.
It's not too late to become a champion to!! Complete your online training now!
This week was a perfect opportunity to engage our staff in an interactive way with a range of materials and resources. We have had a lot of interaction as a result. This week has been important to us as we have noticed as a domiciliary care company there has been a dramatic increase in the number of clients with diabetes. We therefore feel that it is important to give our staff the skills and support to be able to provide clients with the best possible care. This week has aided in making this possible.
Beech tree's internal competition will announce its winners this week!
Hypo Awareness Week judges have completed their assessments and thanks Beech Trees stunning efforts, I am thrilled to announce that we were one of the runners up for the Hypo Awareness Week Excellence Award 2018.
After KICA judges sifted through hundreds of nominations and worked their way through interviews for this years awards ceremony...
Beech tree would like to congratulate Jo for coming runner up in the 'Best manager' category and Vince runner up in the 'Dementia Carer' award. A fantastic achievement for both them and Beech Tree. We would like to congratulate all those who were nominated and those who successfully made it through.
Scams can come in a number of different forms and are normally uninvited:
The main goal of a scam being to con victims out of money by making false promises. The most common occurrences we hear of being prize draws, sweepstakes and lotteries.
