Runwood Homes has organised an egg-citing Easter competition for a selection of its care homes and their local communities, from 8th to 21st April. The competition aim is to provide a great activity for children to take part in during the Easter holidays out of the home, it supports intergenerational engagement, creates interest and physical activity for our care home residents, and helps establishes or reinforce great community links and relationships.
A selection of craft residents at seven of Runwood Homes’ residential care homes across the UK have been busy in their creative activity sessions, decorating a handful of rocks in bright, colourful designs in preparation for a community involvement Easter Hunt competition.
Children and their families within the neighbourhoods of the care homes taking part are invited to venture out into their local areas for a egg-cellent adventure over the Easter school holiday break, searching for the residents hidden rocks.
A total of five beautifully, hand decorated #EasterRocks will be placed in undisclosed locations within the local communities of the care homes taking part, named below, on 8 April, ready for the Easter Rocks competition to begin.
Families should keep their eyes wide open to seek out and spot one of our special rocks, hidden low and high, in nooks and crannies, in well-known community locations and landmarks.
Lucky Easter Rock finders are then invited to exchange their discoveries for a delicious Easter egg prize at their local care home location which is stated on pinned up A3 posters dotted around. The competition will also unfold in social media posts on our Facebook Page using the hashtag #EasterRocks with winners photos being posted with their prizes.
