It is fair to say that many of us have been excited about the long-anticipated Euro 2020 football tournament kicking off on 11th June. Several of our homes have been getting into the spirit by decorating their communal areas with European flags and hosting each match live on their TVs. One home, Avery Park Care Home, have transformed their cinema room into a ‘fan zone’ for residents to enjoy the experience on the big screen.
Hoping it will finally come home is Alder House Care Home‘s footy mad resident Desmond Burridge, who has been glued to the screen watching every England game. A photo of him was shared on Facebook and his son, Clive, commented, “What bliss for you, Dad. Football and beer, your favourite!” Residents at Hempstalls Hall Care Home tried their luck at betting on the big event with chocolate coins. Not wanting to miss out on the fun, staff at Group Support Centre have also joined in by holding a sweepstake, with half of the winnings being donated to The Care Workers’ Charity, totalling £120.
