I know from experience that people often complain about people when things don’t go the way they want, but hardly mention it when someone has done an excellent job.

EMPLOYEE: Andre Lopes

COMMENT:As we all know Andre is very helpful and proactive member of the cleaning team; he is always ready to go the extra mile to help. Last week, he has helped me to resolve a problem with the pantry dish washer, where we had froth everywhere caused by the wrong soap applied accidentally by the catering users. No one knew what to do and Andre decided to help me and we managed to fix it. Without him this would not have happened, I just want to make sure that he knows his help its much appreciated and never taken for granted. If you could please pass my BIG THANK YOU to him, that would be much appreciated.

They placed in his room, shirts, t-shirt, socks, shoes and plenty of toiletries. They could have made us aware and we (The Salvation Army) would provide. But these two guys have done this themselves … as well as providing fresh flowers in the accommodation public areas at their own expense.
