Foster Carers Honoured with Afternoon Tea
Published 04 July 2014
Ahead of receiving their MBEs from the Royal family later in the year, Foster Carers Sandra and Stuart Peacock have had afternoon tea with the Mayor Howard Hamilton, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, Cllr Chris Elmore and Head of Children’s Services, Rachel Evans.
The event was organised to recognise the amazing commitment that Sandra and Stuart have given to looked after children in the Vale of Glamorgan for over 45 years, and was the Mayor’s own personal way of saying thank you to the couple for the remarkable work that they continue to perform with the children placed with them.
The couple have provided short and long term care for more than 150 children and young people of all ages and from different family backgrounds and situations.
Not only have they provided a loving, caring and nurturing environment for the children that have been placed with them over the years, they have also used their skills and expertise to support other foster carers who have needed support and advice.
The Vale of Glamorgan Council is incredibly proud of Sandra and Stuart and all that they have achieved in working with vulnerable and sometimes challenging children over the years.
