Friday 23rd October was Wear it Pink Day!
Here at Pingley Court we were determined not to let Covid restrictions get in the way of us coming together to have a bit of fun and support Breast Cancer Now’s fundraising campaign for vital breast cancer research and life changing care.
Embracing technology, we set up a ‘Zoom’ call to connect the different floors of the home to enable us to involve all our residents here, as well as include family and friends, in our very first Interactive Coffee Morning.
The staff sported pink T-shirts in support of the cause and residents got to enjoy some lovely music, games and fabulous pink themed cakes.
Dawn Martin, Pingley Court Manager, says,
“This ‘Zoom’ coffee morning will hopefully be the first of many to come! We’re determined to embrace some of the exciting new possibilities technology provides to bring people together in these difficult times.
In the weeks ahead we’re planning to work with our local school to bring Samba Smile back to the home, and also invite families and friends to more coffee mornings and our Residents Christmas Parties.“
