Flipping fun on Pancake Day!

The Lawns Care Home, Leicestershire-Norah having great fun tossing her pancake

“What fun that was, much more exciting than simply just eating a pancake at teatime!”

Residents at The Lawns Care Home have been having a flipping good time this Shrove Tuesday with a traditional pancake tossing competition.

As well as seeing who could fling their pancakes the highest we also competed for the furthest – as you can imagine we had pancake frisbees flying all over the place but it was great fun!

Chef made a fresh batch for us to tuck into after all the fun and games with toppings including lemon and sugar, chocolate spread, blueberries and strawberries and lashings of ice cream……there were a lot of happy smiles and empty plates!

Resident Gerda said, “What fun that was, much more exciting than simply just eating a pancake at teatime!”

At The Lawns 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.

The Lawns Care Home is located in Oadby, Leicestershire and provides ​residential care and respite care.
