A few weeks ago we announced that we were taking nominations for key workers who are doing an amazing job of keeping us safe and looked after in the community and we had so many lovely nominations from people all over Warwickshire. It has been hard to choose between all thee nominations but some stood out to us in particular. We have also been continuing to provide sweet treats to NHS staff a Warwick Hospital with the help from The Barn Kitchen.
We loved hearing how well the cakes went down and receiving photos of the key workers.
Here’s some of our favourites along with the nominations we received.
Police Officers at Leamington Spa Police Station:
“Please can I nominate Donna Smith. She’s a police officer at Leamington police station and she’s currently spending her days on the beat dealing with people who aren’t taking the lock down seriously. You can imagine the kind of response she’s getting! She should have been getting married in Italy last month and having a big celebration at Warwick House too. But that all went down the pan thanks to Covid-19. So I’m sure she’d appreciate some of your amazing cakes!! Her husband to be is also police officer at Leamington station. Thanks very much guys. You’re doing an amazing job!! xx ”

Medical Students putting themselves at risk at Warwick Hospital:
“I thought I’d message you guys as I saw your initiative. I’m a medical student who’s passed all his exams and gone to work on the wards early. I’ve managed to get covid from the hospital already and I’m now self isolating in my bed room. I’d like to nominate my 7 house mates (who are also working medical students) who are now forced to stay at home and look after me. They’ve been on the wards all of last week and some over the weekend and now they’re cooking for me and delivering it to my bedroom. I know you’ll be inundated with requests but I thought I’d ask. Very grateful for supporting the whole care community and I realise you can’t give away your stock to everyone. Thank you!”

District Nursing Team at Cape Road Clinic:
“I would like to nominate my amazing District Nursing team of Community staff at Cape Road Clinic, Warwick. All staff in the NHS are working extremely hard throughout the country and this is such a lovely gesture. I’ve only managed them for a short time but their hard work, supportive nature, looking out for each other and the patients on the caseload makes me so proud. “
The Royal Leamington Spa Nursing
“I’d like to nominate The Royal Leamington Spa Nursing Home. My father Tony Robinson was a resident there since November, sadly my dad passed away there 5 weeks ago now whilst in there , the staff there are all truly amazing, the love and care they gave was priceless, not only to my dad but they all went out of their way to make sure my mum was ok everyday when she visited dad. I really can’t thank them enough. Xx”
We want to thank our customers for their lovely nominations and a big thank you again to all those key workers who are working hard on the frontline. We appreciate everything you do!
