The newly fitted tea room at Deangate care home in Barnsley will opens its doors for the first time on Thursday 10th April and residents and members of the public are all invited to a tea, coffee and cake day to mark the occasion.
Famous faces Cher and Tina Turner, albeit tributes, have been given the honour of opening the new facility which will offer a range of mouth-watering treats and quench-thirsting beverages.
The grand opening event, which will raise funds for the home’s residents, will begin from 10.00am with food and drink offerings and a host of activities taking place to entertain guests throughout the day.
Deangate Home Manager, Christine Robinson, delighted with the new addition to the home. She said:
“There is no better to enjoy a slice of cake and a cup a tea than with close family and friends and that is why we are extremely pleased to announce the opening of our new Deangate tea room.
“It has been designed with our residents and their families in mind providing the perfect setting to relax, have a bite to eat and catch up with loved one or treat the grandchildren.
“We are really looking forward to our grand opening event and hope that members of the public will come down and take a look around and enjoy the activities we have on offer whilst helping us raise much needed funds for the residents.”
Deangate provides care for 50 residents and includes a specialist dementia unit. A varied activities schedule ensures that – as well as receiving the highest standard of care – residents are offered the chance to get involved in activities which keep them mentally and physically active and engaged.
