Bringing festive cheer to those who need it

Tyne and Wear colleagues visited their local nursing home

It’s easy for us to get caught up in the rush of Christmas – complaining about the shops being too busy, worrying about what to buy for fussy family members and contemplating whether the new Christmas tree will be too big for the living room.

But let’s not forget that while we’re swept up in the madness of the Christmas countdown, there’s some people who don’t have the ability to be.

And we believe these people should be put on our Christmas priority list.

Let’s remember the true meaning of Christmas.

Colleagues from our Tyne & Wear funeral homes did just this, and ‘decked the halls’ in their local nursing home, to shower the residents in some festive cheer.

They arrived with Co-op mulled wine and mince pies to get their Christmas taste buds tingling, and set up a fun game of bingo for them all to enjoy.

Most importantly they sat with the residents and chatted.

Chatted about everything and anything that they wanted, and gave them some joy at this time of year when they might not have anybody coming to visit.

This is a wonderful act of kindness, and we’re sure it’ll have made their day knowing that they’ve not been forgotten about, and are just as important as anything else in the midst of Christmas.

Well done to our lovely colleagues from Tyne & Wear!
