A beautiful new bench for local care home residents

Our Crowborough funeral home donate a bench

There's nothing like the great outdoors - breathing in the fresh air, having the warm sunshine on your face (when it makes the odd appearance!) and appreciating the world around you.

When our team from Crowborough learnt that their local care centre's day residents weren't able to relax outdoors on their visits due to outdoor furniture being too expensive, they were keen to step in and make a difference.

Ian Richardson, Principal Funeral Director (pictured right) and Vicky Hammilton, Funeral Arranger sourced a bench to give to the Crowborough Hospital day centre, and presented it to the group while they were enjoying their time there - much to their appreciation!

The centre only has the funding to open twice weekly for elderly people who are alone in the community and by providing the bench, the team have started a relationship with the Friends of Crowborough Hospital and are looking forward to providing continual support for them in the future.

Unfortunately the weather wasn't good enough to enjoy the bench on the day of the presentation, but we're sure the day residents will be enjoying it in no time!
