As an established, local, family business, serving the community is at the heart of everything we do.
We attended Camelford Show again this year and were pleased to welcome lots of visitors to our stand.
Mothering Sunday Daffodils
We have been busy distributing 230 bunches of daffodils to our local residential and nursing homes as our gift to residents for Mothering Sunday. We hope that these will provide some spring colour following the recent snow!
Our Holsworthy office has become the first place in Holsworthy taking part in the ‘Refill Devon’ scheme, offering to refill bottles with tap water free of charge. Please pop in with your bottle and help reduce the amount of plastic ending up in our seas.
On Saturday 27th January 2018, families we had served throughout 2017 were invited to join us at St Michael and All Angel’s Church, Bude for our first memorial service. Over 80 family members attended, lighting candles in memory of their loved ones and listening to the ‘roll of honour’. We hope that this will become an annual event.
Kilkhampton Amateur Theatre Society
We are proud to have been the main sponsor of this year’s pantomime – Jack and The Beanstalk. The show also featured our very own thespian – William Bryant, in the role of ‘Slimeball’!
Devon Air Ambulance
On Wednesday 29th November we joined Bradworthy Young Farmers Club and the family of the late Mr Todd Riggs as they presented a cheque for £9642.87 to Devon Air Ambulance. This fantastic amount was collected in memory of Todd at his funeral and through a crowd funding campaign.
Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal
Following successful campaigns in previous years, back in September the call went out once more for volunteers to knit poppies to be sold to raise funds for local R.B.L branches. We were overwhelmed by the offers of support and an enormous number of poppies were received. Knitted poppies were sold in all of our offices with all donations going to the R.B.L. We would like to extend our thanks to all those who gave their talent and time to knit for us. Watch this space for further news on the totals raised.
Macmillan Cancer Support ~ World’s Biggest Coffee Morning
On Friday 29th September 2017 we hosted a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support at our Holsworthy Office. A fantastic £178.66 was raised for Macmillan. A big thank you to everyone who supported the event.
