C&C comes together to mark National Day of Reflection
Residents and staff across C&C have joined a one minute’s silence to remember those who have died as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
All residents across C&C’s care homes and sheltered housing schemes in London were invited to join the silence, held at 12pm on Tuesday 23 March, along with millions across the country commemorating the first anniversary of the first national lockdown.
Residents at Cecil Court care home in Kew also decorated the home – both inside and out – with yellow ribbons to mark the occasion.
Spearheaded by end of life charity Marie Curie, the National Day of Reflection also included various talks and discussions about bereavement throughout the day, while various landmarks lit up yellow during the evening.
Marie Curie estimates that over three million people have been bereaved since the pandemic began.
