A New Malden care home have shared a number of heartwarming stories of their experiences and the community's support during the coronavirus pandemic.

The White House care home in New Malden paid tribute in a newsletter to the "superheroes" at the home and among residents who have supported them during the spread of Covid-19 coronavirus.

"We would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to the amazing staff of TWH who put themselves on the front line everyday.

"They are all heroes in our eyes and we believe they have the nation's gratitude for their selfless service.

"Many of our friends and family old and new have been reaching out to us specifically with messages and gestures of support during these unprecedented and challenging times for the healthcare industry.

"We cannot thank you enough nor convey to you how much your messages mean to us," a spokesperson said on Friday, May 1.

A number of individual messages of thanks to staff and residents and the help they've been providing residents during the crisis were included in the newsletter.

One paid tribute to residents' relatives Stuart Wears and Martin Rumsey for their "overwhelming generosity" in donating £500 each towards our hardworking staff, while local plumber Nathan from Dawn to Dusk plumbing was thanked for dropping in with free cartons of milk for the staff.

Other businesses and groups like AFC Wimbledon Local Action Group and Epsom Skin Clinics were also singled out for their donations of food and personal protective equipment.

Yet more residents like Kelly and her family, and the children of Blossom Hill School, were meanwhile praised for their heartwarming messages of support for the staff and residents at the New Malden care home.

"We continue to be overwhelmed with the response and kindness shown by our Friends, Families and members of the Community," a spokesperson for the White House care home said.
