Brooklyn House Turn Back Time for Children In Need

Brooklyn House Care Home in Attleborough hosted an array of activities and fund raising for Children in Need last Friday. The home took a trip back in time to the 1940’s and were treated to a display of 1940’s dancing and a demonstration of vintage hairstyling on staff who were dressed for the era.

Lunch also took on a 40’s theme with corned beef hash and jam roly poly on offer! There was a swingalong singalong in the afternoon to round the day off.

Staff member Natalie Pegg braved the shave and had her head shaved to raise funds and the Children in Need duck race took place.

Resident Olive Hudson said…“Seeing 40’s dresses again really took me back to the days I went dancing.”

Joan Hotchkiss said, “It’s been a lovely day. So many memories and I’m glad my family dressed up and joined in too.”

Brooklyn House Care Home is a purpose-built home in Norfolk providing nursing care for up to 38 elderly residents.
