Kind-hearted locals treat Mellish care home residents to fish and chips

9th March 2023

Residents of Mellish care home in Sudbury, Suffolk were treated to a heart-warming surprise during a recent outing to a local fish and chip shop. Following a resident's meeting where the request to visit the restaurant was asked for, the group enjoyed a delicious meal before being presented with an unexpected act of kindness.

Home manager Maekhala Allan explained, "When we asked for the bill, we were told that two gentlemen sitting in the restaurant at the same time had paid for our meal. It was an incredibly generous gesture, and one that we will never forget."

James, one of the residents who went on the outing, was so moved by the kindness of the strangers that he jumped at the chance to personally thank them. "He was completely humbled by this," Maekhala said.

The two men, who wished to remain anonymous, expressed their appreciation for the care home team and residents, saying, "We are doing an amazing job and it is our pleasure."

Although the group was unable to take a picture with the generous strangers, they were happy to share a few snapshots of the residents enjoying their meal together.
