Droitwich Care Home Becomes Social Media Sensation For National Storytelling Week

A resident at Ravenstone care home in Droitwich has starred in a Jackanory worthy video for National Storytelling Week.

Audrey Prince, 90, read the popular Goldilocks and the Three Bears on camera which the home shared on its Facebook page as part of the nationwide initiative which aims to encourage storytelling and reading for all ages.

As well as narrating the story, residents at Ravenstone created their own Goldilocks themed illustrations to be shown throughout the video. Some of the illustrations included Goldilocks, grizzly bears and bowls of porridge.

The video received lots of support from the page’s followers, with many comments congratulating Audrey on her professional recital of the childhood favourite.

Audrey said: “I had a lot of fun reading Goldilocks and the Three Bears to our followers on Facebook. It is a childhood favourite which has been enjoyed by many generations, and will be for many more years.

“One of my favourite books as a child was A Peep Behind the Scenes because it is just such a great story.  I read it so many times as a child.  It is a sad story though, it made me cry.”

Wendy Stokoe, home manager at Ravenstone care home, said: “Celebrating National Storytelling Week is very important to us as a home as it gives us an opportunity to share stories with one another. This can be childhood favourites, adult fiction or even telling our own stories to each other.

“The residents had a lot of fun and we have discovered some fantastic new stories to get stuck into!”
