Lest we forget

Lest we forget

Poppies have become the symbol of remembrance so Amanda Littlejohns was delighted when her mum said she would crochet some for St Breock, our care home in Wadebridge, where she works.

That was in 2020 when the pandemic was first rampaging. Twelve months later and what was initially a small display has blossomed into something much larger.

“The poppies are beautiful and we have even more of them this year, thanks to Amanda’s wonderful mum,” said Paula Shilson, St Breock’s home manager.

“With each poppy representing the poignancy of loss, it’s a lovely collection which our staff and residents treasure.”

St Breock is one of our sixteen care homes across the county of Cornwall. We are a charity and are celebrating our 25th anniversary this year.

St Breock is a 37-bed home offering 24-hour care for people with physical health needs or different types of dementia.
