Good Health or “Sláinte Mhath!” as the translation goes. A toast to Robert Burns. On Friday the 25th of January Avonbourne Care Centre celebrated Burns Night.
A day to remember the much-loved Scottish Poet. Avonbourne brought the Scottish spirit (not just the Whisky) into the home. For anyone that wanted to join in we started with an arts and crafts activity to create a wonderful poster inviting the other residents to our celebration. It was a fun packed morning, filled with Scottish music to get us in the Burns Night mood.
Our residents celebrated with a traditional meal of Haggis and Neeps. Prior to the meal we kept true to tradition with the Selkirk Grace and the Address to the Haggis. There were lots of laughter and smiles as we fumbled through the address. We finished the meal with a toast to everyone’s health with hot toddies and for some a wee dram of whisky.
It was a wonderful day enjoyed by all and we look forward to the great events we have planned in February.
