Dane House Care Home in Brighton held a very special event to mark Armistice Day.
Families, Councillors, the Clergy, residents and their relatives all listed to the ‘Music In Hospital’ band as they played war themed music to commemorate the event.
Barbara Evans, HM said: “There were definitely a few tears in people’s eyes. It was nice to see that this event has a deep meaning in people’s heart and we all will indeed remember those who fought for Queen and country. The event was a lovely success and I want to thank everyone who attended. I also want to thank Tesco who provided the buffet helping us to cater for everyone.”
After everyone partook in the two minutes silence, everyone went outside and scattered poppy seeds in the garden.
Care Assistant Rachel Newington wanted to do something special to raise money for Blind Veterans UK, so she dyed and sculpted her hair into the shape of a poppy. To donate to the good cause visit justgiving.com/crowdfunding/poppy-hair.
