Donated items include custom masks, kit bags, visors and even a selection of bedding plants.

Julia Forrest-Wilson, adult services operations manager, commented: “We are so thankful for all of these donations, they have really made a difference to everyone in the team, and it’s nice to know that people are thinking of us when taking the time to make things like the masks and kit bags.

“The bedding plants have also helped to brighten up the front of The Beehive Centre, and the flowers will hopefully be blooming once everyone is allowed to come back into the premises.”
