Knowle Park ‘tumble down the rabbit hole’ for Mad Hatters Tea Party

The National Citizen Service (NCS) paid a visit to the residents and relatives of Knowle Park for a Mad Hatters Tea Party. The young and enthusiastic volunteers came dressed to the nines in their costumes of Alice, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumb, Cheshire cat, the rabbit and last but not least the Queen of Hearts. The residents loved all of the effort put into the costumes!

The volunteers had made decorations and the residents had made crowns with glitter and sparkles; everyone got into the spirit. There was a mountain of homemade cakes and biscuits, and tea and coffee being handed around to the visitors, residents and volunteers. Overall the day was a huge success with the volunteers leaving with full bellies and grinning like cheshire cats and all of our residents rather tired out from all the excitement of the day.

Home manager Athena Stevens said “What a pleasure to welcome the NCS volunteers into our home again. They had previously attended Knowle Park in the summer for a games and photography project, and again in autumn.

We are always thrilled by our volunteer’s presence, as it encourages residents to enjoy group work, socialise and make friends. I’d like to thank everyone at NCS for spending their time with us – we look forward to their next visit!”
