“I really enjoyed getting up and doing a lap of the ballroom and we raised lots of money for Henshaws which is such a great charity.”
Residents at The Granby Care Home have raised a wonderful £165 for local charity Henshaws by taking part in the ‘Henshaws Hundreds Challenge’ to help raise money for people living with sight loss and disabilities.
Henshaws Specialist College in Harrogate empowers young people living with a disability to progress and live life the way they want to through a personalised approach to learning and care.
The challenge was to do a hundred of anything so we decided to hold a huge Teddy Bears’ picnic in the middle of our ballroom with 100 teddies donated by team members and take it in turns to complete 100 laps around the edge of the room.
Magic Moments Club Coordinator Lydia said, “Our residents enjoyed every minute of our fundraising day and we had such a giggle. After we completed our hundred laps we enjoyed joining our teddies for a well-deserved cuppa and slice of cake!”
Resident Elaine said, “I really enjoyed getting up and doing a lap of the ballroom and we raised lots of money for Henshaws which is such a great charity.”
At The Granby 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.
