Due to Covid-19 the Firmager Funeral Service annual memorial service had to be cancelled.
Undeterred, Senior Funeral Arranger & Administrator Helen Carr and Funeral Service Operative Trevor Clark contacted every family they had supported during 2020 to let them know that there would still be a memorial tree in the courtyard at the funeral home.
Families could let the team know what to write on a memorial tag for them to place it on the tree or they could add a tree tag themselves in memory of a loved one if they were passing as part of their daily exercise.
Helen said: “At the same time, we were asking for donations in support of our local hospice. we always support them at our Memorial Service and were determined they should be supported this year too.
I am happy and very proud to say that the tree was a huge success, and we are now forwarding a total of £1035.00 to the Pilgrims Hospice. Thank you to everyone who contributed.”
