Residents and staff at Shelburne Lodge care home, in High Wycombe, laced up their trainers and warmed-up for a joint Barchester Sports Day during Carer Week!
The day was hosted by another Barchester Care home, Chalfont Lodge in Chalfont St Peter, and had several care homes attend the sports day.
The day was organised by Chalfont Lodge’s Physiotherapist, Mansukh Chander who created a day of fun for everyone.
Staff and residents took to their marks in the sack race, relay race and three-legged races as guests cheered on. The teams battled it out to be crowned sporting champions before being treated to a buffet of hotdogs, burgers and homemade sweet and savoury delicacies.
General Manager Diana Nica said: “We always encourage our residents to keep active. With summer on the way we had a great opportunity to move our activities outside to make the most of the weather. Our residents and their guest really enjoyed today and it was lovely to see so many of them getting involved and to meet so many new people. It reminded all of us of when we were kids at school. I would like to say a massive thank you to Raj Boodhoo, Chalfont Lodge’s General Manager for hosting such an amazing event! ”
Ruby Tack, a resident at Shelburne Lodge, said “What a beautiful day we’ve all had. We’ve been so lucky with the weather, and it’s been so fun to see everyone compete and meeting so many new people. I can’t wait until next year!”
