Residents from Care South’s Alexandra House and Dorset House care homes in Poole came together for a day of friendly competition and camaraderie as they engaged in a spirited game of bowling. The event showcased the residents’ enthusiasm and sportsmanship and fostered a sense of community and shared joy.
The bowling tournament featured both seasoned players and novices, with a few residents trying their hand at the sport for the first time. Marie, a 95-year-old resident from Dorset House, emerged as a surprise star, claiming the top individual point score title. Her determination shone through as she consistently knocked down the pins, showcasing that it’s never too late to learn new tricks.
The bowling extravaganza was not just about strikes and spares; it was also an opportunity for residents to come together and enjoy lots of Food, Fun and Friendship while creating lasting memories for everyone involved.
As the day concluded, the residents couldn’t help but plan for the future. Talks of a summer meet-up to play boules sparked excitement, with a friendly challenge to determine which home would take home the title in the upcoming game.
Nicola Bleach, Activities Lead at Alexandra House, said: “Witnessing the residents come together for a spirited game of bowling was truly heartwarming. It’s these moments of joy, laughter, and friendly competition that make our community at Care South so special.”
