Six funeral homes from across Bromley and Bexley teamed together to take part in the Bluebell Walk through parts of north Kent, and have managed to raise more than £500 for St Christopher’s Hospice.

Funeral staff from Doves Funeral Directors in Orpington and Swanley, Crayford Funeral Service, Bexley Funeral Service and Steven Mears Funeral Directors in Sydenham and Lewisham took part in the three and nine mile Bluebell walks in Cudham last month.

Liz Sargent, funeral arranger from Doves, Orpington, said: “It took a little while for the final donations to come in, but we have finished counting and are over the moon with the amount we raised.

“We all had such a lovely day. It was great for all the local funeral homes to come together as a team, team spirit which we can now carry forward into our work!

“Thank you to everyone who has donated!”
