Residents at Marlborough Court Care Home in Thamesmead had a shock last week as the team turned up to work in the wrong trousers.
Wrong Trousers Day helps to raise money for Bristol Children’s Hospital, and the team at Marlborough Court did a fantastic job.
Hayley Mercer, Personal Activities Leader, said: “All of the team wore their pyjama bottoms to work. The resident loved seeing all of the wacky colours. It was a definite change to the traditional uniform we wear. The team definitely enjoyed the comfort of wearing the wrong trousers, but some got a little too comfortable. One care home team member ended up taking 40 winks out in the sunshine on the bench!”
Bristol Children’s Hospital is one of the UK’s leading children’s hospitals treating over 100,000 patients every year from across the South West, South Wales and beyond with life-threatening illnesses and serves as the paediatric intensive care centre for the whole South West region. The hospital is an international, national and regional specialist centre of excellence for a range of services including neurosurgery, burns, cardiac, leukaemia and bone marrow transplants.
Marcos Meanger, Home Manager, said: “Here at Marlborough Court we like to do what we can to help those who are sick or need to be looked after. The team here do a fantastic job looking after our residents, and I think it’s nice they’ve chosen to go the extra mile and raise money for Bristol Children’s Hospital. I’m very proud of the team here.”
