An exercise towards helping with staff recruitment and awareness of the work that Crossroads Care Ribble Valley do took place recently based at the Mayor’s Parlour.

This initiative was with Lloyds Banking Group who each year select a community charity to support and to help make a difference. A team of four members from the bank working in the human resources department came from all parts of the country to participate.

They spent the day in Clitheroe distributing leaflets to members of the public about the work of the charity and the need to recruit more staff. As a result two potential new staff members were identified.

The bank staff returned to base for lunch where they were joined by Ribble Valley Mayor Coun. Bridget Hilton who welcomed them and discussed the day. Also involved on the day were staff from Crossroads Care and trustees and all felt the exercise of working together proved very successful and felt optimistic about the outcome.
