They kept everyone entertained with a medley of music from across the decades and then told everyone all about of one of their upcoming adventures in North America over tea and biscuits. Residents were thoroughly impressed with their performance and loved hearing all about their trip plans!
Last Wednesday, staff from Pinewood Lodge set out on a 10.5 mile sponsored walk for Dementia Action Week! Their route was lovely and scenic with walkers looking out for different wildlife from herons and ducklings to bulls and horses. As well as the more relaxing outdoor sights, they saw some lake skiing and action film making too! It was a fantastic day with lunch and well-deserved ice cream at the Cafe @ Lock 81. The trip was well worth it as the team managed to raise a phenomenal £500 for their residents’ amenities fund! Well done to you all and a big thank you to all who sponsored!
Vesta Lodge Activity Worker Michelle held an art class in the home’s coffee shop where a few very talented ladies enjoyed painting a fruit bowl!
Trefoil House had a spectacular party planned for the Royal Wedding and decided to use the event to support their local community. After much looking around, they decided to host the wedding party in aid of Stepping Stones; a Luton based charity which provides emotional and practical support for vulnerable women.
Their beneficiary agreed, the team at Trefoil got to work putting together a wedding list of traditional household items that wedding guests might buy for the bride and groom and sent this out to all the family members joining them for the big day.
Residents at Fosse House decided they wanted to make their own lunch so, after raiding the pantry, they put together a couple of delicious quiches topped off with potatoes and salad. They even enjoyed doing the cleaning up afterwards before sharing their handiwork with their neighbours in the home!
The team at Meresworth were delighted when their long standing supporters, Kier Construction, got in touch with them to offer their help after seeing a request to the local community for volunteers to upgrade Meresworth’s garden.
