Punchline Business and Community Champion: Insurance company treats nurses to afternoon tea

A Tewkesbury insurance company wanted to show its appreciation for the hard work of district nurses, so arranged for delivery of an afternoon tea.

Steve Barker, from Coversure Insurance in Tewkesbury, wanted to both thank the NHS and support local business. His fiancée, Kate Masters, is a district nurse based in Upton-upon-Severn.

To show his appreciation of Kate and her colleagues' hard work, nursing on the front line, as well as support local business, Steve turned to Tewkesbury tearooms, Tilly's, to arrange for afternoon tea to be delivered to the hard-working NHS staff.

And this act of kindness has not gone unnoticed -  earning Mr Barker a nomination as one of Punchline's Business and Community Champions.

Mr Barker said: "Every day I see first-hand how hard Kate and her team are working, on the front line of the Covid-19 pandemic, caring for local people. I wanted to treat them all to something special to say a heartfelt 'thank you' from me and the boys. 

"Community matters more than ever right now and the team at Tilly's helped me to show my appreciation of Kate and her colleagues."

Tilly's is currently open and offering a takeaway and delivery service.
