Lincolnshire care home residents celebrated a very merry unbirthday at a Mad Hatter’s themed tea party, designed to give residents an extra occasion to have some fun.
On Thursday 14th April, 120 residents, carers and volunteers from the 15 Lincolnshire care homes run by The Orders of St John Care Trust (OSJCT) enjoyed entertainment and refreshments at The Venue in Navenby.
The Mad Hatter’s themed tea party was full of surprises and treats, including a magic performance, where balloon hats were made and mesmerising tricks were showcased, as well as a sing-along to classic British songs.
Residents also had the opportunity to dress in Alice in Wonderland themed outfits, with the Queen of Hearts, the White Rabbit and Tweedledee and Tweedledum making an appearance.
Refreshments included traditional British afternoon tea, a selection of miniature sandwiches, cakes and scones.
Caroline Dunagan, Lincolnshire Assistant Operations Director for OSJCT, said: “Our themed events are a great way to help stimulate imagination, and enables our residents to socialise and have fun with their families, friends and our employees from across all of our Lincolnshire homes.”
