The Orchards Care Home in Ely delivered a breakfast fit for heroes to local emergency services and key workers on Wednesday 10th November.

Equipped with tea, coffee and delicious pastries from local café, Grain Culture, the team at The Orchards first headed to Ely Fire Station to feed the hardworking (and peckish) firefighters.

The team then headed to Cathedral Medical Centre GP Surgery, as well as St Mary’s surgery, where the staff were glad of a mid-morning pick me up!

Kirsty Price, General Manager of the Orchards, said of the scheme:

“We feel a real kinship with our local emergency services, and we wanted to show our appreciation, even if it is only a small gesture. We hope that the wonderful key workers enjoyed our Blue Light Breakfast, and we hope to see more of them next time!”

The Orchards plans to continue the scheme on a monthly basis, with the next dates as follows: Wednesday 8th December, Wednesday 5th January, and Wednesday 2nd February.

If you are a local emergency service or key worker organisation, please feel free to get in touch by calling 01353 885900 and the team will be sure to swing by next time! Alternatively, please feel free to visit The Orchards at 2 Forsythia Road, Ely, Cambridgeshire CB6 2FU.
