LOCAL BUSINESSES UNITE TO SUPPORT SEAFORD'S CARE WORKERS

April 22nd, 2020.


A business in Seaford has worked together with a local family run bakery to provide treats for care home staff who are working tirelessly during the COVID-19 outbreak.


Jerry Lyons and Wendy Reed run marketing company The Estate Agent Content Club, and bought £200 worth of baked goods from Burt’s Bakery, which were donated on Tuesday (21 April) to three care homes across the town.

Burt’s topped up the donation with a further £100 and made the deliveries for free.

Jerry said: “One of my clients did a similar thing in Kent and I thought we could do the same here. I approached Chris Burt of Burt’s Bakery because I know they have been supporting the community and NHS workers since the outbreak and he was delighted to help. It was Chris who suggested we donate to care home workers and residents and I thought that was a lovely idea.

“There’s a lot of good people doing great things during these bad times, and we wanted to do something positive for the people who are essential to our society, yet often overlooked.”

Chris Burt said: “It’s a lovely gesture from Jerry. We are trying to do our bit as a local business and have given free bread to any NHS that have shown their badges at either the shop or unit.”

The donation was made on behalf of The Karma Club, which is the charitable arm of Wendy and Jerry’s business. It helps different community projects and groups each month, locally and globally.

The care homes donated to were Nova House, Freshford Cottage and Threeways.
