Salford care home is overwhelmed with gifts from Oasis Academy MediaCityUK
Barton Brook Care Home situated on Trafford Road, Eccles has recently received a generous number of donations provided by a local secondary school.
It all started when a former student of Oasis Academy MediaCityUK had placed a plea up on Facebook for gifts and chocolates as residents of Barton Brook Care Home had received no visits from family members in nearly two months due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
A number of staff and students, co-ordinated by much loved Maria Hall a Pastoral Leader at Oasis Academy MediaCityUK to donate shower sets, chocolate boxes, 2000 disposable aprons, plus other items.
Marie Dillon, Principal at Oasis Academy MediaCityUK, said; “Staff and students at Oasis MediaCityUK are always thinking of ways to contribute to the community, our vision is to ensure students respectful, global citizens and the staff role model this every day.”
“Maria Hall, a much loved Pastoral Leader has coordinated a number of community projects over many years and this has continued during the lockdown, she is the embodiment of the 9 Habits. I am incredibly proud of how the staff and students have continued to think of others during this time.”
This isn’t the only thing Maria has done to support the community during the pandemic. Throughout the Easter period over 30 chocolate eggs were left on students doorsteps around the local area to cheer them up during the lockdown period.
The academy has also been delivering much needed food parcels to their most vulnerable students and parents who are isolating. All parents have to do is text a shopping list of items to a mobile number and academy staff deliver it the next day using a no contact system.
