An east Belfast funeral home has been awarded a major regional title for the third consecutive year.
Willowfield Private Funeral Home on Woodstock Road has attained the exclusive Funeral Planner of the Year 2012 (Northern Ireland) award from Golden Charter. It was judged as a regional winner from over 1,800 other funeral homes who exclusively offer Golden Charter funeral plans.
Directors Stephen Love and Elaine Barr travelled to Newcastle Upon Tyne on 17 March to collect the award on behalf of the company. In addition to the silver salver and framed certificate from Golden Charter, the Woodland Trust has dedicated a stand of trees in the company’s name at the Woodland Walkway in east Belfast.
Stephen and Elaine said: “We are absolutely delighted. The award pays tribute to all the hard work put into the business and the dedication and professionalism of all our colleagues.”
Ronnie Wayte, managing director of Golden Charter, added: “This is the 19th year of the awards ceremony, and each year it becomes more difficult to choose a winner. Through these awards Golden Charter has been able to recognise personal excellence and professional commitment in one of the most challenging areas of serving the public.”
