Signature at The Beeches, Brentwood, have hosted a summer of celebrations to celebrate the Commonwealth Games, and given their residents the opportunity to compete against one another in a tournament styled competition.
The Commonwealth Games, first held in 1930, is an international multi-sporting event involving athletes from the Commonwealth Nations. Held every four years, the popular sporting tournament was this year hosted in Birmingham, the UK’s second city.
For Signature at The Beeches, the Commonwealth Games ran alongside Signature Sports Week, where residents have enjoyed inter-home competitions against other care homes across the Signature Senior Lifestyle organisation.
Residents at The Beeches took part in penny plunking, enjoyed an Egg and Spoon race which was made up of walking, wheelchair, scooter, Zimmer frame contestants!
Signature at The Beeches concluded Sports Week with a Celebratory BBQ. Residents, friends, family and the local community were all invited to the luxury care home to join the festivities, and enjoy burgers, sausages and refreshments. Later in the afternoon, the residents also enjoyed cocktails at the awards ceremony.
Augusta Udo, Activities Manager at Signature at The Beeches, said:
“Everyone at Signature at The Beeches have had the most wonderful summer of sport. Whilst enjoying the brilliant Commonwealth Games, we have also been enjoying our own competitive fun among residents and our fellow Signature care homes. Residents and Team Members alike have enjoyed competitive, well fought contests, all in good spirits!
“Congratulations to everyone involved, and to all Commonwealth medal winners.”
