There will be fluffy onesies and mouth-watering cakes when two Sanctuary Care homes in Kent host Time for a Cuppa celebrations for Dementia UK.
The team and residents will be throwing open the doors to their local communities, where visitors are invited to pop along and enjoy a hot drink and a variety of sweet treats in return for a donation to the national charity.
Next week the team and residents at Meadow View Residential Care Home in Blackthorn Road, Hersden are inviting local people to their pyjama themed- tea party on Tuesday 7 March, between 2pm and 4pm.
The team will also be donating £2 each for dressing in their finest pyjamas for the special celebration and visitors can also take part in a raffle with a range of wonderful prizes.
91-year-old resident Beryl Palmer (pictured) said: “Our tea party will be a lot of fun, I always like all the cakes and the pyjamas are a lot of fun – I’m really looking forward to it.”
Meanwhile in Erith, the team and residents at Shaftesbury Court Residential Care Home in Selkirk Drive are inviting local people to their pink and blue themed-tea party celebration on Monday 6 March, between 2pm and 4pm.
Along with an abundance of dainty cakes, the team will also be dressed head to toe in the charity’s branding colours (pink and blue).
