As a token of thanks to Whitgift House, a family member of a former resident has donated a superb cut-glass trophy to crown the next winner of the home’s annual Flower Day competition.

The ‘Gwen Powell Prize’ is named after long standing resident, Gwendoline Powell, who lived in Whitgift House’s sheltered living flats for 28 years but moved to a care home closer to the family’s home last year.

As a keen member of Whitgift House’s community, Gwen had a passion for flower arranging and would look after the floral displays in Whitgift House’s Chapel, along with her other important role as umpire for the home’s annual summer croquet tournament.
