Remembrance at Corton House

Posted on 13th Nov 2023 by Imogen Bowers

Many of our residents took the opportunity to reflect and offer prayers at our recent Remembrance Service, with staff and residents giving readings.

Did you know, a special commemorative booklet is always created for our bigger services? No fussing around with heavy, small print, hymn books required!

For those who wanted to wear a poppy, one of our residents Norma was on hand - over the past months she has painstakingly knitted a huge pile of Remembrance poppy brooches, which our Activities Coordinators helped her to sell to fellow residents, staff, families and friends. Norma raised over £150 for the Royal British Legion, a fantastic achievement!
