Willow Brook House care home in Corby has launched an appeal to find the kind-hearted stranger who paid for an ice cream van to drop off frozen treats to the staff and residents.
The home on South Road was visited by the ice cream van on 22 March which took staff and residents by surprise, especially when they discovered the bill had been paid already.
Staff and residents at the care home are now launching an appeal to track down the person who arranged for the delivery so they can express their gratitude.
Elizabeth Little, 82, resident at Willow Brook House care home, said: “I can’t believe someone was so kind as to do this for us, it really made us all smile.
“We would love to know who you are so we can say a big thank you!”
Julie Britten, peripatetic manager at Willow Brook House care home, said: “Everyone at the home was speechless when we found out someone had arranged for an ice cream van to deliver ice creams to us all, free of charge.
“During difficult times, people’s kindness can mean so much, particularly to vulnerable groups. We would like to find out who this kind soul is, so we can say a proper thank you”.
