It was an absolute privilege to surprise the team at the Bereavement and Friendship Cafe in Clacton with an Asda Foundation Bringing Communities Back Together grant of £805 which be used to throw the Christmas party that they didn’t think they would be able to have.

I enjoyed spending the morning talking to each of the members and hearing how much of a difference this group makes to all of them. Most of the members went many months not seeing anyone due to the pandemic and they are so pleased to be able to get together again. I saw for myself how happy everyone was to be around friends again. We hope they all have a fantastic Christmas celebration.
