Kendal care home supports tree replanting schemeResidents and team members at HC-One’s Summerhill care home in Kendal are supporting a local charity to help replant 200 trees that have been cut down.

With 200 trees were being lost due to building plans for a flood wall, Summerhill care home decided to offer their support to a local charity who are working hard to create a new wooded area to replace the trees that were removed.

The saplings of the trees that had to be cut down were replanted by Residents and team members at Summerhill ready to be collected and placed in the new wooded area in the Sizergh Estate.

Residents enjoyed being part of project which gives back to nature and supports living in an eco-friendlier environment. One Resident commented: “I am so pleased that the trees are not just gone forever and they will regrow in their new home.”

Summerhill Home Manager, Kathleen Dean said: “It’s great to be working to support our local community, well done to our amazing team and Residents for their hard work to replant the saplings ready for their move to Sizergh.”

Located on East View, Summerhill care home offers short and long term care packages for older ladies and gentlemen that require residential care, nursing care and memory care, for those living with dementia.
