Care home marks 1940s with open day

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

A CARE home in Denby Dale is hav­ing an open day on Satur­day.

The event at The Denby will be based on a 1940s theme and will fea­ture a Amer­i­can jeep from World War Two called Willys Jeep.

En­ter­tain­ment will be pro­vided by Golden Age Song­bird.

There will also be cake and craft stalls along with face painting and prize raf­fle with items do­nated by Denby Dale busi­nesses.

All money raised will go into the res­i­dents fund to en­able the home to take res­i­dents on trips and to pro­vide en­ter­tain­ment and any­thing else they wish.

Home man­ager Emma Brown said: “It’s vi­tal to the health and well­be­ing of res­i­dents that we in­vite the lo­cal com­mu­nity in.

“All too of­ten we only read about poor care and ig­nore the ex­cel­lent care de­liv­ered across the UK.

“By invit­ing peo­ple in, that is the young and not so young, to see what we do and to meet our res­i­dents, we hope to dis­pel the ru­mours and let peo­ple see what our home is about and how we de­liver kind care.”
