The Laurels care home in Draycott near Cheddar hosted a fantastic Christmas Party to end 2022 on a high. Families, friends, staff and even The King of Rock and Roll joined residents to attend the celebrations at The Cheddar Rugby Club Pavilion. Over 100 guests were treated to a delicious buffet spread made by the care home’s chef Katie Bagwell and her kitchen staff team.
In the lead up to the party it was a full team effort to decorate the venue, prepare the buffet and ensure the residents were ready to enjoy their party. Residents were treated to a pamper and had their hair and nails done on the morning of the party. They were particularly taken with the glittery hair spray which was a pamper favourite for many.
At the party everybody danced and sang to Elvis who performed for an hour and made a huge fuss of all the residents by getting them involved and serenading them. Guests also enjoyed a raffle with fabulous prizes donated by local businesses, which raised over £350 for the resident’s Comfort Fund.
The party was a huge success. Health care professionals said ‘it was the best do they’d been to’ and residents’ families said ‘it wasn’t your typical care home do it was magnificent’.
“Not only did the guests enjoy the party but our residents were left feeling over the moon, the next day they were still buzzing from the night before.” commented Home Manager Becky Green “I want to thank everyone for all their help and efforts towards the event, it was a truly special evening for all’
