Signature at the Beeches residents joined forces with Stacey Solomon to produce creative Christmas crafts as part of her Craft Your Own Christmas show.
The luxury care home in Brentwood welcomed the TV star as millions across the nation tuned in last night at 8pm to see the home’s colourful creations. As part of her show, Stacey was joined by residents Christine Everard, Lori McClauchan, Elsie Booth, June and Ron Miller as they showcased their skills.
The group produced three different crafts which included knitted pom-poms, festive sewing and homemade Christmas cards. Working with the local Age UK, the cards created have been sent to recipients the charity supports in the community.
Commenting on Stacey Solomon’s visit, Ellie Cairns, Client Liaison Manager, at Signature at The Beeches said:
“We were thrilled to have Stacey Solomon come and spend time with us for a spot of Christmas crafting.
“It was great to see our residents join in the festive spirit, and to see the positive impact crafting and other creative activities have on their wellbeing. Ensuring the community could enjoy our creations was equally important, and recognises that giving back to others is a key part of Christmas.
“Stacey built a lovely bond with our residents, and she is more than welcome to come back anytime to visit the friends she has made at the Beeches.”
June Miller, a resident, at Signature at The Beeches said: “It was wonderful to get involved with Stacey and create crafts together. We had a lovely day together and look forward to hopefully seeing her again soon.
“I hope the viewers enjoyed our contribution to Stacey’s show.”
