A FUNERAL home in Ellesmere Port town centre has been raising awareness of two important causes.

Co-op Funeralcare on Marina Drive recently supported both Dying Matters Week and Nurses Day.

The funeral home proudly decorated its windows with colourful pictures and positive words to raise awareness within the community.

Funeral arranger Kathleen Diane Grant said: "Here at Co-op Funeralcare Ellesmere Port, we always celebrate important causes throughout the year by creating colourful window displays to inspire the community.

"It has been especially important during the pandemic and helps us to engage with the friendly folk here in Ellesmere Port, to try and support them and keep a welcoming feel to our funeral home.

"Residents in the area always respond positively to initiatives and contribute significantly to fundraising events with selflessness and enthusiasm.

"We will be on the lookout for local causes that we can help and encourage the community to reach out with any suggestions. Additionally, send us your nominations for a local hero, who’ll receive a certificate and badge, we’d love to hear your stories and shine a light on people that are making a difference."

Co-op Funeralcare Ellesmere Port opened its doors three and a half years ago and has helped raise money for several charities during that time.

On Remembrance Sunday, the home raised over £500 by selling knitted poppies. They also raised funds and donated 400 knitted ducks to the Countess of Chester hospital.
