Funeral Partners has revealed the winner of its Christmas window displays competition with first place being awarded to Melia Powell Funeral Services in Keighley, West Yorkshire.
Melia Powell utilised their window displays to appeal for pyjama donations for underprivileged children around Christmas, as well as selection boxes for Leeds Children’s Hospital.
Each winning branch received a £50 One4all voucher, with the runners-up being awarded with £25 vouchers and £10 vouchers going to those in third place.
The competition was also regional, with the following branches also coming first alongside Melia Powell:
In addition, WH Putnam Funeral Directors in Harrow, North London; Doves Funeral Directors in Bromley, Kent; Douglas Mercer & Son Funeral Directors in St-Leonards-on-Sea, East Sussex; J H Way Funeral Services in Dawlish, Devon and Shields of Donaghadee Funeral Directors in Donaghadee, Northern Ireland all came in first place.
Gemma Taylor, community and communications manager and Beverley Brown, marketing manager, judged first, second and third place in each region, which contain more than 200 Funeral Partners funeral homes combined.
Taylor said: “We received some incredible entries this year which made it really hard, but we managed to choose our magnificent top eight.
“It’s a testament to not only the creativity of our funeral teams but also their drive to brighten up their local communities with the theme of hope and joy while many families who have lost loved ones struggle this Christmas.”
She added: “It’s always uplifting to see our funeral homes going the extra mile, and we look forward to continuing to support local communities through a range of initiatives in the new year.”
