The Staff Lottery Bids Panel recently approved a bid to support the Specialist Services Recognition Event, which was delayed for a year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The funds were used to purchase awards, decorations and refreshments for the event, directly supporting the Specialist Services staff by showing the appreciation of their hard work and dedication.

As the event was postponed due to the pandemic, the organisers ensured that it was made bigger and better with the use of Staff Lottery funds.

Natasha Bevan, the Specialist Services PA, said: “Due to the ongoing situation with regards to the pandemic, it is even more important to make sure that the staff feel valued, and their hard work appreciated.”

The Staff Lottery Bids Panel were delighted to approve the bid, as it shows appreciation of the hard-working staff, which in turn supports their overall wellbeing.
