Residents Of Moorgate Hollow Receive The Ballroom Treatment

Residents at a Rotherham care home were treated to a night of sequins and spray tan as the care home staff laid on a Strictly Come Dancing themed afternoon.

Staff at the care home, on Nightingale Close, got into the groove with the Cha Cha and American Smooth, sweeping residents off their feet in celebration of their love for the programme.

Residents also got into the spirit of the show by judging the staff on their moves with the iconic score paddles, dressing up and watching re-runs of the programme.

David Boyd, 75, resident at Moorgate Hollow care home, said: “It was such a beautiful afternoon and such great fun to get involved and dance with the staff.

“We definitely need more practice though; I felt a bit rusty with some of my moves!”

Lyn Pilkington, home manager at Moorgate Hollow care home, said: “Lots of our residents used to dance and are fans of Strictly. It’s been lovely to dress up the room and get the residents onto their feet.

“It’s heartwarming to put a smile on residents’ faces and see them dance away.

“I’d also like to say thank you to our deputy manager, Leighann Peace, who organised the event. It was fab-u-lous!”
