A full day of fun at The Vale's Care Home Open Day!

The Vale Care Home in Bolsover enjoyed a busy, sunny day throwing open their doors for national Care Home Open Day last week!

Care Home Open Day is celebrated each year by care homes across the country. It aims to encourage stronger relationships between care homes and the local community and provides a chance for people to see what life inside a home is really like.

During the morning residents and visitors took their chances on the tombola and picked up goodies from the bric-a-brac and cake stalls. Then for lunch it was time to fire up the BBQ for hotdogs and burgers.

This was followed by a raffle, in which the fabulous prize was a gas BBQ, kindly donated by a residents family!

And in the afternoon there was an entertainer who was by turn singer, ventriloquist and magician! The show was a great end to a fabulous day, which also raised some monies for the Residents Fund.
