Annual Christmas Party
14 December 2017
Residents enjoyed their Christmas Ugly Sweater Party. Families and friends joined us for our annual party, a seasonal spectacular buffet was put on by the kitchen team, families commented on how it was like being in a 5* star hotel. An interactive Christmas cake got everybody in the ugly sweater spirit, residents, families and staff all dressed for the occasion in ugly tops and sweaters.
The hilarious comedy singer Alan had everybody singing, dancing and laughing along. The Christmas magic filled the whole home. The night was topped off by a resident and her friend singing a duet of Silent Night, receiving a standing ovation at the end, it was such a beautiful ending to a lovely day.
We invited a reporter to stop by from the local newspaper (the Surrey Advertiser) they are running a story on our 'Christmas friendship appeal' while she was here she joined in the celebrations and got a feel of the love and warmth the cards have given to our residents, she spent her time chatting with residents and dancing along to the music.
We were over whelmed with the support our families and suppliers gave us in donating raffle prizes, we raised £220. Thank-you so much for everybody who joined us and/or donated prizes.
