Weekly Community Roundup – 30th October 2020

Teesdale Care Packages

Caring staff from John Blenkiron & Sons Barnard Castle recently purchased some items to contribute to the Teesdale Care Package Campaign.

Care packages are delivered to 70 households per week to a variety of people including older people who are isolating and unable to access shops, and families on low incomes.

Every donation supports the community, particularly during the pandemic as winter approaches, this will be an extraordinarily tough time for many people.

If you would like to donate any amount to the campaign, please click on the link below.


Hygiene Hampers

Two local care homes have been gifted hygiene hampers from Steven Mears Funeral Directors in Sydenham courtesy of Funeral Arrangers Angela Austin and Becky Gledhill.

Westwood hill and Peartree Care Homes respectively were delighted to receive a hamper, which was full of essential items for residents including, razors, shaving foam and shower gel.

A thoughtful and practical gift that is sure to mean a lot to those who need it.

Lest We Forget

Henry Ison & Sons Funeral Directors across Coventry and Warwickshire have decorated their windows in support of the fallen and the Royal British Legion.

Our Daventry Road Funeral Home is an official point of contact for their local branch of the Royal British Legion, the Vice Chairman of which has been selling poppies outside and doing what he can in these most unprecedented of times to generate awareness and funds for the charity. 

For the second year running our Leamington Spa branch has been a distribution centre for their local Royal British legion. Feedback from members has been incredible with overwhelming praise for new Funeral Arranger Yvonne who is truly embracing her role within the community.
