A free brunch is being held for NHS and emergency services workers in Painswick.

Retirement village, Richmond Villages Painswick, is hosting the event from 10am-11.45am on November 3.

It will look to give back to those who selflessly go above and beyond for the local community every day and provide an opportunity for local members of all the emergency services and NHS key workers to come together.

The special gathering will recognise the dedication and hard work demonstrated by local blue light workers, with Richmond Villages Painswick residents and staff looking to extend their appreciation for their tremendous efforts during the pandemic.

The brunch will be served free of charge and prepared by the village’s chefs.

Oliver Kyte, head of hospitality at Richmond Villages Painswick, said: “The last 18 months have been tremendously difficult for everyone, especially for our residents, but our local emergency services and NHS key workers have worked tirelessly throughout to protect our local community.

“The hard work that our local emergency services have put into keeping our residents as safe as possible throughout the pandemic is something that we are eternally grateful for.

“Our delicious brunches are renowned among our guests at the village, as well as visitors, therefore what better way to give back to our community heroes than hosting a special, dedicated brunch. We hope that all attendees enjoy the brunch and accept it as a token of our appreciation for all of the incredible work that they continue to do.”

If you’re an emergency service or NHS key worker and you wish to attend the brunch, please RSVP to either Ellie Wallis, Ellie.Wallis@mccann.com or Freya Budd, Freya.budd@mccann.com by October 27, to confirm your attendance.
