Covid-19: A Slice of Life & Calor Support Local Community

Calor has partnered with Athlone based catering company, A Slice of Life, in supporting their local community through the Covid19 pandemic with a surprise delivery of delicious and wholesome cakes to nursing homes in the locality.

Residents and frontline staff of three nursing homes in the local area were presented with tasty treats to showcase gratitude and support to those in high risk segments of our community during the current crisis. The three nursing homes to receive the cakes were Sonas Nursing Home in Athlone, Thomond Nursing Home in Ballymahon, and Behany Nursing Home in Tyrrellspass.

Calor were delighted to team up with A Slice of Life to provide a brief moment of distraction and baked goods to those impacted in the COVID-19 pandemic. The partnership, as part of #CalorCares initiative, provides vital support to promote local business.

A Slice of Life was established by sisters Elaine and Leigh in 1993. The company was born out of a love of cooking with their mother in the family B&B, Shelmalier House in Athlone. The catering company have built up a fantastic reputation and a wealth of experience providing top quality food.

Irish businesses, in particular small and medium-sized enterprises, have been greatly impacted by coronavirus restrictions and are feeling the economic implications. A Slice of Life is one of the businesses responding to significant changes while ensuring preventative measures in place to continue with orders and the successful delivery of their premium product. 

Commenting on the partnership with A Slice of Life, Sharon Nolan, Marketing Manager, Calor said:

“Calor was delighted to work with A Slice of Life on this initiative. We are happy to promote local businesses and show appreciation to the hard work of frontline staff in nursing homes in the local communities that Calor serve. Supporting indigenous Irish businesses is vital to our economic recovery.

Covid-19 restrictions are difficult for everyone in many ways. But for the residents of nursing homes, the restrictions have meant significant period of time with very limited face-to-face contact with family. We hope the delivery of delicious goods from A Slice of Life brought a smile to the residents faces.”
