As a headline sponsor of Nutrition and Hydration Week 2017, Tetley will be highlighting, promoting and celebrating improvements in the provision of nutrition and hydration, focussing on nutrition and hydration across the health and social care sectors. Caroline Lecko, Nutrition and Hydration Week campaigner says; "The Nutrition and Hydration Week team are delighted to be working with Tetley as one of our key sponsors. We believe that improving hydration is fundamental to promoting health and well being and, for so many, the familiarity of a nice cup of tea is the best way to support adequate hydration."
Tetley is also proud to be partnering with Martin McKee, Head Chef at The Hawthorns Retirement and Care Home, Aldridge, who will be working with Tetley as brand ambassador, to provide tailored hydration advice to the care channel. Martin, who has just won the 2017 NACC Regional Final for 'Care Cook of the Year' and moves on to the National Finals in June, comments; "I'm thrilled to be working with Tetley on this project. Regularly offering residents different tea blends not only contributes to overall fluid intake, but becomes part of a wider social occasion in care homes for residents, visitors and carers alike."
On Wednesday 15th March, Tetley will be hosting an Afternoon Tea event at The Hawthorns Care Home for residents, as part of the Worldwide Afternoon Tea initiative. Martin will be creating a delicious afternoon tea spread, suitable for the different needs of the residents and all to be enjoyed with Tetley's scrumptious blends; with the leader of the Tetley Tea Folk, Gaffer also making a special appearance!
Tetley will also be supporting the National Association of Care Home Caterers (NACC), across 2017 as a premier partner, attending the Training & Development Forum at the East Midlands Conference Centre this October.
Marshall Kingston, Senior Brand Manager - Out of Home, Tetley comments; "As champions of the importance of hydration within care homes, Tetley is delighted to be working with Martin McKee, the NACC and Nutrition & Hydration Week representatives. We're proud to share 180 years of expertise with care home catering and care teams and also provide a familiar comfort to residents, staff and visitors alike within the care home environment."
