Care Home’s ‘Super’ Children In Need Celebrations

Staff at New Milton’s Kingfishers care home transformed into a legion of superheroes to celebrate this year’s Children in Need.

Led by ‘Supergirl’ (home manager Beata Brzozowska), the group included Spiderwoman, Batgirl and the lady of the lamp, Florence Nightingale – plus a real-life version of the Children in Need mascot, Pudsey Bear.

The Colten Care-owned home in The Meadows is a huge supporter of the annual fundraiser and also staged a ‘bucket challenge’ as well as hosting a group of children dressed as superheroes from nearby Durlston School.

Four brave staff from the home’s Companionship Team drew lots during the hilarious bucket challenge and took a chance on being doused with paper, old leaves, fizzy pop, or gloopy, yellow custard.

Manager Beata said: “The residents, staff and visitors feel passionately about raising as much money as we can for Children in Need and as you can see, we also enjoy any excuse to dress up and have fun. So a great day was had by all.”
