The packages have been arranged by the Kachra family, owners of the group, after seeing their staff struggle to get provisions.

A team of volunteers from the group’s head office, together with the owners of neighbouring business Elevate fitness studio, are sorting and packing the boxes for their 32 nursing and care homes. They will be delivered for staff to take home and share with their families.

Chairman of Country Court, Abdul Kachra said: “We are a family business and our staff are very much part of our extended family. We wanted to do something to acknowledge all of them for all the hard work, compassion and dedication that they show every day.”
