At our latest induction this week, new colleagues were CHuFT to be given a sustainable, reusable, drinking bottle as a welcome gift.  One Culture of Care is about caring for each other in the same way that we care for our patients.  And with the help of CHS Ltd, we’ve taken it one step further by caring for our planet too!

Stuart Sugarman, Managing Director of Calderdale and Huddersfield Solutions Ltd (CHS) was excited to be involved in the launch and generously donated funds to create the eye-catching new bottles.  

He said: “We're finalising our Sustainable Development Plan to look after precious natural resources, and reduce harmful emissions, so I’m delighted to be working with CHFT in producing this reusable bottle.  They help colleagues to stay hydrated and are kinder than single use plastic to the planet too”.

"In the bottles colleagues will find a message encouraging us to reduce, reuse and recycle. 

"There’s also a voucher inside each bottle which they can pass to a colleague who has supported for them during the first few weeks of their new job. 

"These caring colleagues can then redeem the voucher for their very own water bottle. There are goodies inside the bottle too including a selection of cold brew fruit and herbal infusions which Teapigs kindly contributed and a free meal voucher for use at a Schwartz Round. "

To get your very own water bottle keep doing what you do best ….. caring for each other.
