Romford Care Home in Neave Crescent, has launched a monthly Breakfast Club as a way of honouring and giving back to the local Emergency Services who every day make a difference to those living in the Romford and wider Havering community.
The breakfast club, which will be held on the first Friday of the month, was the idea of both the residents and team at the Nursing Dementia and Residential Home.
General Manager Michelle di Bella, spoke about the sentiment behind hosting the monthly club “The purpose of the Blue Light Breakfast Club helps foster a great partnership with the first responders of Havering and builds relationships, whilst ensuring we are openly supporting the great work that they do within our community.”
Each month, the event will be hosted by a member of the team, where tea, coffee, hot bacon baps and a variety of freshly baked homemade cakes and cookies made by the homes Chef Pauline Ibhawaegbele.
News of the Breakfast Club has already been spreading, with local advertising and also support from leaders from all emergency services in the area; including the Superintendent at Chadwell Heath Police Station who put out a call to all units just before the first Breakfast Club.
The first Breakfast Club was hosted by Dorota Pukacz, home Administrator, where pots of steaming hot tea and coffee, crispy bacon with a choice of red or brown sauce served in freshly baked rolls and Chef, Pauline’s famous freshly baked cookies.
Customer Relations Manager, Tracy Smith who played a pivotal role in the organisation and success of the event was heartened by the response, “It’s amazing what a great response we got from everyone who turned up. The Ambulance crews were especially grateful as they all said how it’s very hard to get a hot drink between calls and they loved our reusable mugs and said they would now go everywhere with them.”
