Christmas Bazaar at Riverside Place

Riverside Place care home’s Christmas Bazaar was held in the Orangery and Wine bar on the 15th December, and was open to our residents, relatives and the public. For the bazaar, the residents created many items to sell, including home-made Christmas puddings, Peppermint Creams, Toy bags for children, a Tombola and other activities such as face painting and games. As well as these stalls, two local businesses also ran a stall which were home-made lollipops and a cake stall. We had a local bakery donate two beautiful white chocolate and raspberry Christmas logs, one of which we used as a tombola prize and another was handed out to guests as a complimentary treat.

Our Kitchen and Hospitality teams provided home-made mince pies and mulled wine, along with pickles and chutneys that were available to purchase. This fun event was held for many reasons, the main reason was for the enjoyment of our residents and getting them involved. They all pitched in with the baking of goods, decorating the home and creating gift bags for the children. It was also an opportunity for family members to join their loved ones and it was very heart-warming to see everyone dancing to the live music that was performed by a fantastic 1940’s style singer.

The feedback from our residents was that it was a ‘fantastic day’ and ‘very fun’ and it was lovely to see the residents that don’t usually want to leave their room when asked, getting involved and even having a dance!
