West Norfolk Befriending is deeply saddened to hear of the death of His Royal Highness, The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

In February 2010 we were honoured to have a private visit from Her Majesty the Queen and His Royal Highness, The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Clients, volunteers, staff and supporters all met the Royal couple who joined us for our yearly social event at Sandringham visitors centre.

We have many happy memories of that day and offer our condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and her family.

We have delivered Easter Hampers to residents and staff at the four care homes that we work with as part of the Care Home Connectors project funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.

The hampers were made up of activity packs, a soft bunny, lots of chocolates and sunflowers. Local balloon company called Wonderland Balloons donated the cellophane and bows. Care homes are Goodwins Hall, Fridhem Rest Home, Burman House and Downham Grange.

The residents and staff alike were very happy to receive them. With care homes being closed for so long due to Covid -19 it was so nice to be able to visit them and bring a little joy, and sunshine. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
