Local Care Home Joins Thousands of Residents for Annual ‘Pub Quiz’
Barchester’s Upton Bay care home, in Poole, got into the Christmas spirit by joining a virtual afternoon of festivities along with the staff and residents at over seventy Barchester care homes across the south of England, Jersey and the Isle of Wight.
Upton Bay’s staff and residents pulled out all the with their party props, to link up with over 2,500 residents in the south of the country for a whole host of different fun activities, culminating in the Barchester Big Quiz of the Year.
General Manager, Mevin Sohorye, said: “We’ve all had a challenging year so we wanted to ensure the Christmas celebrations for our residents and staff were an extra special treat. ‘Meeting up’ with the other homes virtually has given them all such a boost. We’ve all had such fun waving streamers and wearing silly hats, even our Companion Puppy Milo couldn’t resist the party poppers!”
