Residents at St Oswalds House Care Home recently welcomed Warrington Wolves rugby league team to visit and they brought along the Challenge Cup trophy!
The Wolves beat St Helens 18-4 in the Challenge Cup final at Wembley Stadium this summer, winning the competition for the ninth time.
Our resident Brenda is a keen supporter and remembers seeing her first Challenge Cup in 1954 so she was delighted to meet the team and have a chat about the club’s history.
Magic Moments Club Coordinator Michelle said “We were so lucky to have been chosen by the club for their visit as we know Warrington Wolves are in high demand and everyone in the community would have loved this rare chance for a glimpse of the cup.”
At St Oswalds House we believe in living life to the full. That’s why we’re passionate about creating vibrant, stimulating activities that will help our residents to love every day. We call them ‘Magic Moments’.
Every brighterkind home now has a Magic Moments Club which provides a vast range of activities and fun things to do that are open to all of our residents.
The idea behind Magic Moments is that just because someone moves into a care home doesn't mean that the things they love doing should suddenly stop – quite the contrary, we believe our residents should have the opportunity to love every day, by doing the things that they have always loved as well as trying new things along the way.
