Whoever thought living in a care home would be a sedate affair couldn’t be more wrong.
The team and residents at Hesslewood House Care Home in Hessle have been really busy taking part in a number of competitions.
The first competition saw the team from the care home take on the Bubble Rush challenge, in the hopes of raising money for St Andrew’s Hospice.
Michelle Pepworth, Home Manager, explained: “The day of the Bubble Rush event was a lovely day. We took some of the residents down to the park to cheer the team on. When the team had finished running, they were greeted by the residents who were eating fish and chips, which proved to be a temptation for the team. I’m really proud of the guys that took part in the event, as they raised over £400 for the Hospice. Well done team Hesslewood House!”
Not content with the team outdoing them, later on in the week the residents took part in the East Riding Bocci Bowling Competition. The residents had their game faces on and made it all the way through to the semi-finals before losing out at the last minute.
Michelle Pepworth added: “The bowling team did great. They narrowly missed out on a place in the finals. Since returning to the home the residents have got a renewed vigour for bowling and they have been practicing whenever they have a moment to prepare for next year’s competition.”
