Blog: An emotional episode of Call the Midwife reminds us of rhubarb with sugar and the power of kindness
By Louise Swindell
Tenovus Cancer Care Development Manager
Many of us watched this week’s episode of the much loved BBC TV series Call the Midwife with a tissue in hand. As always, this Sunday night family favourite reminds us of how much, but also how little has changed in the UK. Many of us enjoy reminiscing over the fashion and the music, and smiling over the kindness within this community. I am quite sure rhubarb will be in short supply this week after this very touching moment on screen.
This week starred the wonderful Annette Crosbie as played Clarice Millgrove. A lady who had become confined to the downstairs of her home and was struggling to come to terms with her lack of independence, especially given her bravery during the suffragette movement. I for one smiled as she was described as ‘a woman of substance’ and was finally able to feel empowered again.
But what I thought was most touching about this character’s journey was her legacy. It is a very sad moment when Clarice passes away, but there is lightness when the things that were most important to her, are left to those she loves in her Will. This is a very touching moment and it's clear from the people who receive the gifts that her kindness will continue long after her time on earth.
If, like Clarice, you would like to write your Will and ensure your most loved treasures go to the people who will value them most, please don’t hesitate to call me and discuss how we can write your Will – for free. Or you can register your interest online, here.
