Nursing home residents receive delicious treats thanks to local Co-op


Residents and staff at Home Close nursing home in Fulbourn have enjoyed a wonderful cream tea thanks to a generous donation from their local Co-op and a community group.

The Fulbourn branch of the Co-op, along with local group, ‘Community Matters Fulbourn’, arranged the donation and delivered scones, cream and jam for residents and staff to enjoy.

Home Close is part of the Healthcare Homes Group and provides high quality residential and nursing support for up to 72 people.  The donation is one of the countless gestures of support and thanks the team has received from the community in response to the efforts of staff during the COVID-19 crisis.

Patricia Burton at Home Close said; “It’s been said in so many ways, but we really can’t explain the challenge our team has faced as we’ve supported our residents throughout the COVID pandemic.

“We have come together fantastically as a team and have received overwhelming support from local people and local business such as the Co-op.  I would like to thank them on behalf of everyone at Home Close.  We are incredibly grateful for their generosity.”
