Care homes bury time capsules for 25th anniversary

Hallmark Care Homes have buried time capsules this week to mark the provider’s 25th anniversary.

A care provider has buried time capsules at all of its care homes to mark its 25th anniversary.

Family-run Hallmark Care Homes, which was set up in 1997 and has since cared for over 10,000 residents, buried the capsules last week. They included newspaper cuttings, photos, coins, resident poems, letters from relatives and collaborative work with local schools in line with the businesses five values - growth, openness, togetherness, individuality and quality.

As part of the events, residents also enjoyed live entertainment and a special cake made by the home’s dedicated kitchen teams. They were joined for the occasion by Hallmark Care Homes’ chairman Avnish Goyal, managing director Aneurin Brown and the senior leadership team who thanked the teams and made an 800-mile trip to visit all of the company’s 22 care homes in one week.

Brown said: “It was lovely to mark our 25th anniversary as a business and see everyone joining in with something that explains the world as we see it right now. A special plaque has been installed to mark the point where the time capsule is buried and we hope in 25 years when it is dug up, future generations can discover and learn from it.”

And Goyal added: “I am so thankful and proud of the teams for everything they have achieved over the past 25 years. The road trip was a great opportunity to unite and acknowledge our caring and committed team who go above and beyond daily to ensure that residents have an amazing quality of life.”
