Food delivery delights residents in Telford

1 April 2020

Residents from Sanctuary Retirement Living’s Lawley Bank Court in Telford have had their spirits lifted thanks to the generosity of a local supermarket.

Staff from nearby Morrisons packaged up bags of food from the store, including all the essential items needed during the current lockdown, and delivered them to residents at the service.

They also dropped off breakfast items as a treat for residents and staff to enjoy.

Kirsty Lees, part of the wellbeing and inclusion team at Lawley Bank Court, was delighted to welcome Deborah Jayne Dodd and Maxine Whitfoot from Morrisons to make the extra special delivery.

Kirsty said, “We’d like to say a big thank you to Morrisons for everything they’ve done for us. Residents have been so reassured to know that their food is being delivered directly to them, meaning they can stay safe in their flats, without needing to venture to the supermarket.”

Residents were further cheered by talented pupils from the local Lawley Village Academy, who brought their metal band to the service.

Although the children could not come into the building, they were able to play their instruments outside while residents gathered at their windows to listen.

Becky Meadows, Registered Retirement Living Manager said, “The support we’ve had from the local community, and especially Morrisons, has been wonderful. Residents enjoyed the musical performance from the school children and it really lifted their spirits. It’s been great to see how people are going the extra mile to support each other.”
