There was an abundance of sweet treats from around the world at a Coventry-based Sanctuary Care home’s international Time for a Cuppa event.
The team and residents at Lammas House Residential Care Home, which provides care for the elderly, including residential care, celebrated their rich cultural diversity at a tea party with a difference, raising £70 for Dementia UK.
Manager Rukmi Silva and her team looked spectacular in traditional dress from exotic places as far afield as Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe, Figi and Barbados.
She said: “We wanted to do something a little unusual for Time for a Cuppa this year and everyone loved our international-theme!
“We have over 13 nationalities in the home and our team proudly showed off their national dress, the home was full of bright colours and the residents thoroughly enjoyed it.”
Local people dropped by to sample mouth-watering desserts from around the globe, including Spanish tea cakes and Sri Lankan jelly.
Time for a Cuppa is Dementia UK’s national fundraising event. It brings people together to raise money for the provision of nurses specialising in dementia care.
