We are excited to announce the launch of Lincolnshire Staff Recognition Programme!
Lincolnshire Recognition is a new tree-planting programme, created to reward and honour the Lincolnshire NHS team’s commitment, endurance, and skill throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
Maz Fosh, Chair of the Lincolnshire People Board:
“Lincolnshire’s NHS staff have always shown great commitment to the people in their care, never more so than in recent times. Lincolnshire is indebted to NHS staff in the county who have demonstrated commitment, endurance, and skill during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lincolnshire Recognition is our way of saying thank you for your service by offering you the chance to plant a commemorative tree and tell your COVID-19 pandemic story.
We hope you and your loved ones will cherish your tree, wherever you choose for it to grow.”
How do I take part in Lincolnshire Recognition?
Visit the Lincolnshire Recognition website – lincolnshirerecognition.co.uk site to:
- Choose ‘A Tree For Me’ – a free sapling to plant yourself
- Register for the honorary NHS Woodland Lincolnshire tree-planting programme
- Share your own COVID-19 pandemic story.
‘A Tree for Me’
Choose a sapling to plant in a place that is special to you. You can collect your sapling at a Lincolnshire Recognition Roadshow event taking place at a location near you from 19 April.
NHS Woodland Lincolnshire
With the support of The Woodland Trust, we are creating NHS Woodland Lincolnshire, a county-wide tree-planting programme dedicated to the county’s NHS staff.
NHS Woodland Lincolnshire is open to all, but particularly those without space to plant a tree. This programme supports our collective ambition to look after our county, now and in the future. It also demonstrates Lincolnshire’s commitment to the national Greener NHS initiative.
Share your pandemic stories
We also encourage you to share your personal COVID-19 pandemic story on the Lincolnshire Recognition website. Each new tree honours your hard work and dedication during the pandemic, and by recording the part you played, your legacy can be shared.
The Lincolnshire Recognition programme website is live and accessible to all NHS Lincolnshire employees. Visit the site, choose your reward and share your story. lincolnshirerecognition.co.uk
