Jesse's Anchor Coffee Mornings -
Next Jesse's Anchor Coffee Morning: Monday 4th August 2022
We are currently running our coffee mornings on a takeaway basis, in our Reception area.
These sessions will run from 9.30am until 11.30am and are specially designed to meet members of the community and engage in general chat, whether it be related to the funeral industry or otherwise. We also have our 'Ask The Undertaker' initiative, whereby the public can freely walk up to us and ask absolutely any questions
- there is never such a thing as a stupid question! Our arranging room is open for private conversations.
We will be raising money for Jesse's Anchor, a local charity close to our family, who support families with children under the age of four, diagnosed with rare forms of cancer. We appreciate all donations, and can be made at our premises or online.
On offer will be hot drinks, cake and biscuits also suitable for those with special dietary requirements.
"We are so grateful for the amazing team at Jordan Young Independent Funeral Home who raised a fantastic £59.90 on their first coffee morning! In the circumstances amid COVID and having to offer this on a takeaway basis, it's a fantastic result! Jordan and his team are offering vital services in the current climate and we are so pleased they have chosen to support Jesse's Anchor along the way."- Jesse's Anchor Children's Charity (August 2020)
We are currently setting up a get-together event, where everybody is welcome, to socialise, hold activities and have refreshments. We will be holding these in Dereham and surrounding areas, with some being held at Dereham Cricket Club, with all other details to be confirmed in due course. It is free to join, however we will be collecting money for Jesse's Anchor and Cruse Bereavement Care if any donations are desired. If you or someone you know may be interested, please get in touch and we will send information packs to you.
