An egg-stra special Easter in our local communities

colleagues took part in various activities

Easter is a time for celebration, loving and giving - and that's exactly what our Funeralcare colleagues intended to do this Easter!

Our Funeralcare colleagues across the UK have been selflessly contributing to people and causes close to their hearts over the Easter period, to ensure that everybody was able to enjoy Easter. 

Below are just a few examples of the activities that have been taking place in the lead up to and around Easter.

We're so proud of the work our colleauges do - well done to the below and all the other colleagues that got involved in arranging something in their local community!
