There were fabulous frocks and roaring forties music when a Sanctuary Care home in St Johns, Worcester supported a charity close to their hearts.
Making Time for a Cuppa
The team were dressed to impress in their finest 1940s attire, with polka dots and a-line skirts galore and there was also toe-tapping live music from the era with musical act Poppy Sisters.
Fabulous frocks and cakes
90-year-old resident Peggy Digger (pictured) said: “Everyone looked fabulous, I loved all the dresses – oh and the cakes were delicious too.”
Fellow resident Marie Brodie, who is 91 years old added: “The music was fantastic, I really enjoyed it – they sounded great.”
Visitors were invited to pop along to enjoy a hot drink and a variety of sweet treats in return for a donation to Dementia UK.
Plenty of smiles and laughter
The Sanctuary Care home’s activities leader Bridie Gray said: “Every year we try and pull out all the stops to support Dementia UK’s Time for a Cuppa as it’s a cause so close to our hearts, and this year was no different.
“There were plenty of smiles, laughter, fabulous music and delicious cakes. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and more importantly we did our bit for Dementia UK.”
