Burford thanks Local Community Friendship Club Volunteers with lunch and a tour
Burford House Care Home in Chorleywood hosted a celebratory lunch to give thanks to local volunteers of St Andrews Church for their be-friending services for elders in the community.
Last week, the volunteers were invited into the newly built Burford House Care Home to enjoy a celebratory two course lunch prepared by the on-site chef giving thanks to their charitable work and community involvement.
The volunteers ‘Friendship Club’ at the local St Andrews Church support and spend time with local friends and neighbours, whereby local residents can enjoy hot lunches, a variety of games and activities, providing social interaction in a safe, warm and comfortable environment.
The afternoon was bursting with discussions about their community work during a two-course lunch, followed by a tour of the new luxury care home. Volunteers were then invited to the lounge to enjoy refreshments and cakes with Burford House team members to discuss the home and facilities available.
Brenda Sweetman, Care Home Manager at Burford House Care Home, said: “It was an honour to meet all the incredible individuals who do so much for our local community. The team wanted to thank everyone for providing such a wonderful befriending service to fellow members of the Chorleywood community and the surrounding areas. We welcome them to visit our home again soon and look forward to building our relations with similar local services.”
A member of St Andrews Church, said: “Thank you for hosting a delightful lunch for our group. Burford House Care Home is magnificent, and your food and hospitality were exemplary. We truly appreciate your invitation.”
