Several care homes in South and West Yorkshire painted the towns greens as they celebrated St Patrick’s Day on 17th March.
Residents from Balmoral Care Home in Sheffield celebrated by taking residents and their relatives to the local pub to drink Guinness and sample some Irish beers.
It was a more subdued affair at Cherry Trees Care Home in Barnsley as they held a coffee morning with a sweet Irish Twist.
At Highstone Mews in Barnsely local singers came in to entertain the residents and their families. They also celebrated a member of the team’s birthday. A slice of cake added to the sweetness of the afternoon.
Residents at Pellon Care Centre in Halifax had a meal with an Irish twist. The catering team delivered a themed menu which included: Irish Stew, Champ Potato, soda bread, Baileys cheese cake and Irish coffee. Everyone enjoyed the meal with every plate left spotless.
Paul Anthony, a local singer, entertained residents at The Lodge Care Home in Killamarsh, singing some great Irish songs. An additional surprise was delivered by Bronagh the Kitchen Assistant, who did a full rendition of ‘Penny Arcade’. The residents joined in and helped belt out some of the songs.
Last, but by no means least, at the Woodlands Care Home in Mirfield, residents had their faces painted and held an Irish themed party, complete with four leaf clovers, Guinness (other drinks were available) nibbles and lots of singing. A great time was had by all.
