Gracewell of Camberley has raised £200 for the Alzheimer’s Society from a charitable outdoor cinema experience on 23rd September.
Hosted in the beautiful gardens at Gracewell of Camberley, the event, which was attended by 50 people, including team members, residents, and their families, was organised as a way to bring people together after the COVID-19 pandemic.
On the night, all attendees got the full cinema experience, not only enjoying the film classic, Mamma Mia on the big screen, but also tucking into hot dogs, popcorn, and hot drinks whilst wrapped up in blankets.
As well as this, guests were treated to some added entertainment that put a constant smile on people’s faces, with team members dressing up as popcorn, ketchup, and hot dogs for the event.
The evening proved to be a huge success, providing a unique opportunity for people to spend quality time with their loved ones in a safe environment.
The outdoor cinema experience adds to a long list of innovative events arranged by the rated ‘Outstanding’ luxury care home by the CQC, with planned activities pivotal to their vision at Gracewell of Camberley of enabling residents to live purposeful lives.
Reflecting on the fantastic evening, resident at Gracewell of Camberley, Sheila Easy, who attended the event with her Grandson, said:
“It really was a lovely occasion. The blankets kept us warm, the film was great, and the popcorn was lovely. A really different experience for us all!’
Speaking of the event, Jeorgia Jones, Home Admission Advisor at the care home, added:
“The event was a huge success. Not only did it provide a great opportunity for our team, residents, and their families to enjoy some valuable time together, but we managed to raise a fantastic amount of money for a great cause. It was such a unique experience for many of us, and everybody thoroughly enjoyed the evening.”
