Wellbeing is important to us at TrustQuay, with mental wellness just as important as physical wellness. Following the Mental Health Awareness Week in May and its theme of ‘Kindness’, we wanted to spread a little kindness in our community.

With the Covid-19 pandemic applying particular pressure to the care sector, we felt this was the right place for our small token of kindness. Not far from our UK head office in Fleet is Sunrise. Sunrise is a care home providing high-quality, personalised dementia care-assisted living and end of life care.

After speaking with Lucy Jesse, Director of Community Relations at Sunrise, we agreed some sweet treats would help boost morale.  We enlisted the services of Cinderella’s Bakery in Odiham. Alison assisted us in delivering some beautiful cupcake bouquets, and they looked amazing!

Lucy Jesse commented;

"Thank you so much to TrustQuay, who got in touch with me to see if there was anything they could do for us, to say thank you to our Team that work here at Sunrise of Fleet. It was a really nice surprise to have such an offer ‘out of the blue’ and a really thoughtful thing for them to offer us all a treat! The whole team here were so blown away by the generosity of the company for gifting us such beautiful and delicious cupcakes. It really lifted everyone’s spirits and we will always remember their generosity! Thank you!"

We’re delighted to have uplifted the spirits of key workers at Sunrise with a small token of kindness during the current pandemic. It really does show that spreading some kindness can make a positive difference and it’s something we encourage all our team members to do through our CSR programme.
