Brooklyn House is blooming thanks to Sainsbury’s!

The residents of Brooklyn House care home were thrilled with the arrival of flowers kindly donated by the local branch of supermarket chain Sainsbury’s.

Sainsbury’s runs a community board project and donate flowers over their sell by date to local businesses and community members, with Brooklyn House set to benefit from regular flower deliveries in the future.

Deputy Store manager Tom Niblock, who was accompanied by Community Board Manager Amy Hennigan and Dan Welsby from the produce department, remarked:

‘The idea is to put something into the community and help the environment by reducing waste.’

The flowers were soon put to good use by the creative residents, who quickly set about arranging them into vases and said they looked ‘blooming lovely’ around the Attleborough home.

Brooklyn House Manager Karon Leonard was thrilled with the donation, saying:

‘We would like to thank Sainsbury’s for their generosity and thought in donating their excess flowers for our residents to enjoy.

It is wonderful that Brooklyn House is so well regarded within the local community and we are hoping to build on these relationships this Friday (20th June) as we open the doors for National Care Home Open Day and Saturday (21st June) for our Summer Fete, which the Community Group are kindly supporting as well.’

Located at the heart of Attleborough, Brooklyn House provides residential and specialist nursing care for up to 40 people.
