The Beeches are welcoming the community to join them for a Wednesday Wave!

We’re so pleased to announce that The Beeches have signed up to a new campaign to unite the community and stay connected during the coronavirus pandemic.

A few months ago, we were all ‘Clapping for our care worker heroes’, and now we are contributing to The Wednesday Wave to counter loneliness among those feeling isolated or lonely during the coronavirus pandemic.

The campaign is being launched by the Vamos mask theatre company and will run for ten weeks and aims to connect the public with people in care homes or who may be isolating in their own homes.

Starting from 3pm on Wednesdays, from 14th October until 16th December 2020, everyone is welcome to wave, wherever they see The Wednesday Wave poster or a hand drawing displayed.

Bev Shave, deputy home manager at The Beeches, commented:

“We can’t thank our community enough for their support during this difficult time. Everyone’s gifts and letters of support has really lifted resident’s spirits over the last few months, especially as they can’t go out themselves.”

“Initiatives such as The Wednesday Wave helps to spread some much needed positivity and lets those that are isolating know that they’re not alone.

“The impact that a friendly wave can have on loneliness is huge, and those who are isolating must not be forgotten.”
