The Season’s festivities ran throughout the whole of December at Byron Court Care Home, the highlight of the festive period was the Christmas Bingo! The generosity received for the bingo was overwhelming and we would like to extend our thanks to the families, staff and the local community for their donations. The day was such a success and is still talked about in the home with fondness amongst the residents! We managed to raise £500 on the day that will go towards the Residents Funds, we will shortly hold a residents meeting for them to decide what they would like to spend this money on.
Derek, is a talented singer who visits Byron Court on a regular basis to entertain the residents with a few of their favourite tunes and he really went to town for the Christmas Party! Families and friends came to spend the day with the residents, there was laughter and cheer surrounding the home and it was a really special day for everyone involved.
A few residents donned their best frocks and suits for a trip to the Empire Theatre for the Christmas Pantomine in December, it was very much loved by all and as such we have already arranged another trip in late February to see Rat Pack.
Thank you to all the staff within Byron Court who went that extra mile to ensure the residents had a truly magical Christmas in 2017!
