The British weather can’t seem to make its mind up this summer. Knowing how unpredictable our weather can be, when the sun came out this morning the residents at Rotherwood Care Home went outside to make the most of the sunshine and get some much needed Vitamin D.
The residents really wanted to make the most of the sunshine so thats exactly what we did. The team helped the residents outside while our activities coordinator set up the regular activities outside. The activities included our weekly sing along choir club, a music quiz and tin-can-alley.
The residents had a wonderful day and even enjoyed a Choc-Ice while outside in the sun.
Over the weekend here at Rotherwood we held our annual summer fair. During the day we had a variety of different stalls including one full of handmade gifts made by our lovely residents, a tombola, a raffle bric-a-brac and many more. We also had a food stand with hot dogs and burgers, a refreshments stand with drinks and cakes and a few games stands with games including hook a duck and tin can alley.
The day was of great success and was enjoyed by all. At the end of the day we counted up our donations and managed to raise a total of £150. We will be arranging a service user meeting within the next couple of weeks were we will come together to discuss how the money should be spent.
We would like to thank all who attended for their kind donations and support, both before and during the event.
On Saturday 16th July Rotherwood Care Home will be opening its doors to the local community for our annual summer fair. This years theme will be ‘a day at the Fun Fair’.
Doors will be open from 1:30pm and there will be a variety of things happening, including; the vintage tea party, various stalls, Hook a Duck, Hot Dog stand, angel readings and much more.
Raffle tickets are on sale now and can be purchased from the homes office. We are also collecting raffle prizes and donations which can also be handed in to the homes office.
We look forward to seeing everyone and hope that the good weather continues for us.
