Silver Sunday at The Lakes Care Centre
Silver Sunday has been running for several years, it started with a tea dance and within a few short years it has turned into a national campaign to tackle the blight of loneliness that affects so many older people.
Silver Sunday is always the first Sunday in October, it’s a time for the nation to come together to remember older people and to celebrate their contribution to society.
As part of Silver Sunday at The Lakes Care Centre they linked with their local school, Ann Edwards School, where the pupils made the residents some lovely cards, with pictures and special messages of love and friendship.
The Deputy Head Teacher, Miss Lund, hand delivered them all to the home, it’s so lovely for the pupils and the residents to have a close relationship.
The beautiful cards came from Beech, Oak, Holly and Chestnut classes and the pupils in Sycamore class wrote lovely poems. In the afternoon residents enjoyed watching some recordings of the children singing which they sent over to the home for the residents to enjoy.
