In this two-minute read, we say a big thank you to those in South Devon who are working or volunteering during the Christmas period.
It’s the night before Christmas, and excitement is reaching fever pitch among children (and adults, some of our team included).
But let’s also spare a thought and share some gratitude for the people, around one million of them across the UK, who work on December 25th.
While you’re tucking into the turkey or munching away on your seasonal veg, it can be easy to forget that it’s another working day for some of our neighbours.
Emergency services, hospital staff, carers, traffic officers, HGV drivers, and hospitality workers all come to mind as people who will be putting in shifts across South Devon while many of us are having fun.
There are also scores of volunteers who give up their time on Christmas Day.
From helpline call handlers to those who organise lunches on December 25th for lonely or vulnerable people in the community.
These superstars are giving the most precious present anyone can – their time and attention.
So, to all those hardworking and community-spirited folks, we salute you.
You are local heroes, and we are grateful to you. And we hope you get some quality downtime to enjoy the festive season.
