The gift of flowers for Mother’s Day

Mother's DayThroughout the week leading up to Mother’s Day the teams from James and Thomas Funeral Directors in Cobham and Guildford and Woking Funeral Service visited local care homes to present the female residents with a little gift.

Ladies at Cossins House Care Home and Springfield House Care Home each received a pot plant in a colourful canvas bag, and ladies at Queen Elizabeth Park Care Home and Claremont Court Care Home each received a colourful canvas bag of primroses as well as ladies at Bernard Sunley, Kingsbury Court and Gracewell of Woking who were gifted a primula in a colourful canvas bag.

Mother's DayThese hand-delivered gifts are sure to become an annual treat for the Mothers and Grandmothers of these care homes, so much so that the team are already planning next year’s delivery which is sure to include even more recipients.

Funeral arranger Liz Bayliss said: ‘The residents at the care homes were delighted with their Mother’s Day treats as it came as a nice surprise.  The carers welcomed us with open arms and commented on what a lovely idea it was, and are looking forward to next year’

Mother's DayFuneral arranger Angela Collyer said: ‘We put all the plants on a trolley and went to every room to present the ladies with their plant. An extremely rewarding experience.’

Funeral Director Caitlin Crispin-Maguire said: ‘The residents and staff alike loved them and we’ve promised to return with gifts for the gentlemen on Father’s Day!’
