Penny Appeal serve care home residents afternoon tea

Date published: 06 March 2018

The Penny Appeal Organisation visited Carders Court in Castleton to serve them afternoon tea on Monday.

The Penny Appeal was set up in 2009 to provide poverty relief across Asia, the Middle East and Africa by offering water solutions, organising mass feedings, supporting orphan care and providing emergency food and medical aid.

The Orange team volunteered to visit the Carders Court Residents to help with the afternoon’s activities and to chat to residents about the work they do.

The team served refreshments and cakes for residents and their families, joined by vocalist Julianna, who provided the entertainment.

Karen Wright, wellbeing coordinator at Carders Court, said: "Residents had great fun requesting their favourite songs and singing along.

"Around 40 people attended the afternoon including residents, colleagues and family members and everyone commented on how much they enjoyed themselves.

 “What an enjoyable afternoon.

"It’s always lovely seeing our residents have fun and interact with new people.”
