Jesse's Anchor Coffee Mornings -
Next Jesse's Anchor Coffee Morning: Tuesday 10th October 2023
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)
With our regular coffee mornings supporting Jesse's Anchor children's cancer charity, we have raised £459 during 2022
