Wear It Pink Day

Friday 23rd October 2020

We will be celebrating ‘Wear It Pink’ Day again this year to raise money for Breast Cancer Now. Every Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Wear It Pink brings together thousands of people on one day, all with the same aim – to wear pink, raise money and help make life-saving breast cancer research happen. This is one of the UK’s biggest fundraising events, having raised over £33 million since launching in 2002.

We invite all residents and staff to get involved – wear pink wigs, hats, shoes, nail varnish, lipstick – whatever you want! Entertainment and refreshments will be served on the day, as well as fun games and activities run by the L&W team. Family and friends are welcome to get involved as well, if you have a visit or Skype call booked with your loved one! If you wish to make a donation, a moneybox will be available at reception.

A Day at the Movies

Wednesday 28th October 2020

After the success of our 70’s themed day, we are putting on another themed day for our residents and staff! This time, the theme is the movies! Staff will dress up as their favourite movie characters and residents will be able to judge who they think is the best dressed. In the afternoon, we will turn the lounges into our very own cinemas, provide popcorn and refreshments so our residents can watch a movie of their choice. Games and activities will take place throughout the day as well.

Individual Gym Sessions


Join our leisure and wellness coordinator Alex for one-to-one gym sessions to keep you active and healthy. With lots of equipment in our home gym to use for gentle exercises, the residents can do their exercises at any time of the day.

Music and Percussion

EVERY WEDNESDAY - 3.00pm, First Floor Lounge

Join us for an afternoon of fun – we’ll be singing and dancing along to all your favourite songs.

All this is happening as well as our regular groups. Contact us today on 01242 505 560 to find out more about these upcoming events and activities or why not suggest an activity yourself!
