Belong Commemorates Jubilee with Biggest Party Ever

Joyous Jubilee celebrations at Belong care villages took place over the weekend, with customers and families of the not-for-profit dementia specialist marking Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with a party of a lifetime.

Amongst an abundance of Union Jack flags, tea and cake, the residents and tenants across the North West and Midlands dressed in their best for a jam-packed bank holiday weekend, featuring right royal garden parties, complete with music from bygone eras, and live entertainment.

Highlights included customers being supported to create Jubilee cocktails and commemorative plates; playing giant lawn games and pin the crown on the queen; visits from the zoo, silhouette artists, singers, dancers and musicians; and even knitting corgis and crowns to decorate local Royal Mail post boxes.

Stacey McCann, chief operating officer at Belong, said:
“Our customers have loved being involved with the plans, inputting their ideas and sharing their experiences from past jubilees and reminiscing about the Coronation.

“It’s been a fantastic celebration and to see the happiness in everyone’s faces and the tremendous impact it has had has been wonderful and I’m sure it will be the talk of our villages for some time to come.”

Belong’s celebrations coincide with being chosen to feature in the official publication of Her Majesty The Queen:
The Official Platinum Jubilee Pageant Album. Launched on the 5th June, the book commends outstanding individuals and organisations from across the country and the Commonwealth that have had an impact on life in the UK over the past seven decades.
