Foster Carers rewarded for long servicePublished Friday, 27th February 2015
Rotherham foster carers have been celebrated and awarded for their long service and invaluable support they have given hundreds of children over the years.
The Council's Fostering Service held a ceremony at the Town Hall to recognise its longest serving couples and individual foster carers.
The awards covered 20, 30 and 40 years’ service to Rotherham fostering.
The Mayor of Rotherham, Cllr John Foden, presented the foster carers with their awards and a framed certificate and then joined them for afternoon tea.
The Mayor said: "This is a special event to recognise and celebrate the long service given to Rotherham’s looked after children by a select group of foster carers and to thank them for their hard work and commitment.
"Foster carers do a fantastic job caring for some of Rotherham's most vulnerable children."
