Hallgarth-Care-Home-Durham-Easter-Bunny-2017

26 Apr 2017

On Easter Sunday, everyone had a lovely surprise at Hallgarth Care Home in Durham when the Easter Bunny made an appearance.

Angela Muir, Home Manager, told us: “The Easter bunny had a treat for everyone, which she duly bounded around and delivered to everyone. Everyone was surprised to see a 5ft 2 bunny jumping around but were more than happy to give her pink fluffy tail a squeeze.

Joe, a resident, was so impressed he told me he’d always wanted to meet a real life bunny girl, but Norleen wasn’t quite what he was expecting.

“Happy Easter from everyone at Hallgarth.”
