Res­i­dents dance away at jazz party

Macclesfield Express - - HEART OF THE COMMUNITY -

RES­I­DENTS at Prest­bury House Care Home en­joyed an in­door beach party as part of the Na­tional Care Home Open Day.

The party was open to the com­mu­nity too, with res­i­dents and visi­tors en­ter­tained by the Saints and Sin­ners Jazz Band as they showed off their moves on the dance floor.

Chil­dren from Kids Al­lowed at Tyther­ing­ton Busi­ness Park also at­tended the event, danc­ing, laugh­ing and singing with the res­i­dents. And even a Mac­cles­field Fire Sta­tion crew let their hair down and joined in the fun.

Res­i­dents en­joyed a glass of wine and tasty nib­bles as well as ice cream from Mr Whippy’s van.

There was also a se­lec­tion of hot­dogs and burgers which they en­joyed be­tween sing- a-longs and danc­ing.

Michelle Wal­ton, leisure and well­ness co-or­di­na­tor, said: “One res­i­dent, Bob Hoban, sang his heart out and danced the af­ter­noon away with us.

“At the end he had tears of joy in his eyes and said ‘thank you very much for mak­ing my day’.”

Raf­fle prizes were do­nated by Toni and Guy, Tat­ton Park, Arighi Bianchi, Bac­chus Res­tau­rant, Su­per Bowl, and Mor­risons. All money raised will be do­nated to the res­i­dents’ ac­tiv­ity funds and Age UK.
