Stranger Sends Ice Cream Van to Care Home

A care home in Corby has launched an appeal to find the kind-hearted stranger who paid for an ice cream van to drop off frozen treats to the staff and residents.

Willow Brook House care home on South Road was visited by the ice cream van on 22nd March, taking staff and residents by surprise, especially when they discovered the bill had been paid already.

Staff and residents at the care home are now appealing for the person to come forward so they can express their gratitude.

Elizabeth Little, 82, resident at Willow Brook House care home, said: “I can’t believe someone was so kind as to do this for us, it really made us all smile.

“We would love to know who you are so we can say a big thank you!”

Julie Britten, Peripatetic Manager at Willow Brook House care home, said: “Everyone at the home was speechless when we found out someone had arranged for an ice cream van to deliver ice creams to us all, free of charge. 

“During difficult times, people’s kindness can mean so much, particularly to vulnerable groups. We would like to find out who this kind soul is, so we can say a proper thank you.”

Willow Brook House forms part of Larchwood Care and is currently managed by Healthcare Management Solutions.
