Front line ACHA staff who delivered vital services during the Covid-19 pandemic have been presented quaichs in recognition of their efforts.

During lockdown the housing association’s workforce continued to carry out emergency repairs and essential health-and-safety servicing. In addition to that, staff also delivered food parcels and prescriptions to vulnerable residents throughout Argyll and Bute linked to the council’s emergency planning framework.

Alastair MacGregor, ACHA’s Chief Executive, said: ‘All ACHA Group staff pulled out the stops to help during lockdown.

‘There were examples of going the extra mile, and indeed bravery, from a number of
our staff.

‘We felt it more than appropriate that recognition should be given in a commemorative way to colleagues who had done so much to help others.’
