Due to the pandemic, it’s been frustrating for our teams not to be able to have our usual open-door policy to greet clients and former clients who have become friends. So many become regular supporters of ‘Name a Star’ and ‘Light a Candle’, and it has been sad not to be able to stay in touch more regularly and in person. Our Witham team have really taken this to heart and set about thinking what they could do, both to let the local community know that we’re thinking of them, and to show appreciation for those looking after some of our more vulnerable citizens.

So, it was with great pleasure recently, that our Area Manager, Bonnie Beck, and Funeral Arranger and Group Funeral Plan Coordinator, Sarah Dewey, delivered some much-needed good cheer, from our Witham branch office to the staff at Park View Care Home. Bonnie and Sarah put together some very thoughtful wellbeing bags, full of items to help these caring heroes to de-stress and relax after work.

The ladies delivered bath bombs, shower gels, make-up remover pads and other small pampering treats to the Park View team, who do so much to care for their residents at the best of times, and have gone way beyond the extra mile during this difficult COVID-19 season.

The team at Park View were delighted with this lovely and unexpected gesture of support when Bonnie and Sarah went along to deliver their goody bags, observing safe distancing carefully throughout their brief visit.

Bonnie and Sarah have more plans to spread a little happiness, devising treats and puzzles, to let local care home residents know that we are thinking of them, and to keep them intellectually occupied for a while! We’re hoping that they will be able to deliver these shortly, and that it will turn out to be a pilot project that can reach out further.

Our Witham team can be found at Old Bank House, 95 Newland Street, Witham, Essex CM8 1YZ.
