A.R. Adams Supporting Local Projects

A.R. Adams Supporting Local Projects

A.R. Adams Funeral Directors based in Rayleigh and Southend (Thorpe Bay) are looking to support four local community projects, groups or associations.  Each of the four will receive a lump sum donation from A.R. Adams Ltd.

As an independent, family run company with a strong team of staff working in the community we want to continue supporting local people.

Over the years we’ve supported some fantastic projects and associations and are now looking for suggestions to find another four.

Are you part of a local group, association or charity?  Would your group benefit from a donation award? Are you involved in a community project that could do with a boost of funds? Like our Facebook page and comment on the post telling us about your group.

All suggestions will be reviewed and a decision on the final four charities will announced on Friday 31st August 2018.

  • The Thorpe Bay office provided us with the most exceptional care and kindness when my Mum left us. I am more than grateful and have already recommended the services of this excellent company.

  • Words can't say how much they cared for my dad, myself and my brother when we suddenly lost our Mum. Nothing was too much and they went above and beyond and helped us go through the arrangements. Thank you.

  • Our father could not have had more care, nor a better ‘send-off’. Adams, Rayleigh, were super in every sense of the word. I highly recommend them.

  • A.R. Adams could not have done anything more. Not only in the way they cared for the family but also how they accommodated all of our requests on every occasion we’ve had to use them. Nothing is to much trouble.

  • I cannot express enough how caring and helpful Adams are in a very stressful time. They handle everything with in professional manner with the right amount of empathy to make you comfortable. This is a family run business that gives a service that is lost in large organisations and I thoroughly recommend them.
