A Sanctuary Care home in Oxfordshire has been busy having a dabbing good time when local scouts hosted an evening of entertainment.
Entertainment for all generations
From ‘Garden Gate number eight’ to ‘Knock at the Door, 24’, the young scouts, aged 10 to 14, brought the ‘house’ down when members from all generations of the community came together for the 90 minute bingo festivities.
The visit from the community-focused youngsters brought a lively twist to everyone’s evening, with Wantage Nursing Home dusting off the dabbing pens and getting into the competitive spirit before the event even kicked off.
Youngsters giving something back
Wantage Nursing Home resident, Bet Wilkinson, said: “The scouts were lovely and so polite – they were all keen to help us. I had a very enjoyable evening,” with fellow resident, Shelia Penny, adding: “It’s fantastic to see young people engaging with the community.”
Liliana Fludra, the Sanctuary Care home’s activity leader, concluded: “The youngsters from 4th King Alfred Scouts are always welcome to Wantage Nursing Home – all the residents really enjoy it when younger members of the community drop in to say hello. We can’t wait for the next evening of bingo.”
Future bingo events – community is welcome!
4th King Alfred Scouts will be dropping in for round two of bingo entertainment at the Wantage Nursing Home on Monday 16 March at 7.00pm. Everyone from the community is welcome.
