Marvellous Macmillan ‘Mad Hatter’s Tea Party’ at Kingfisher Court
Kingfisher Court pulled out all the stops for their fabulous Alice in Wonderland themed ‘Mad Hatter’s Tea Party’ this week. The event, which was held to support and raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, was certainly fun filled, with our residents and staff enjoying a jam-packed day of activities, from taking part in a raffle, party games, cupcake sales, hat competitions and much more.
Much-loved resident, Shelia, had previously made a wish on the Home’s wishing tree, that the staff would take part in a fancy-dress competition and her wish came true when the team dug out their very best Alice in Wonderland themed outfits for the day.
Shelia said, “It was amazingly arranged by Lifestyle Manager Linda. She did a terrific job, her imagination knows no bounds, particularly the items that she decorates the home with. All the staff did a terrific job of dressing up and I thought it was brilliant the outfit Cara wore, who has just started working here. She brought her dress for just £1 from a charity shop and made it into an outfit for the day. The ingenuity of the characters was great, like Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum down to the yellow tops. It was a splendid day and lovely how a lot was made of it. The hats, which we had been decorating earlier in the week, were also a lovely addition to the day.”
Lifestyle Manager Steve was crowned the winner of the staff fancy dress contest and residents Nina and Margarita won the highly anticipated ‘Resident Hat Competition.’
The Home has already raised the brilliant sum of £178 for Macmillan Cancer Support with a few more donations still to come in.
