The Arran Banner - - News -

Res­i­dents and staff at Cooriedoon care home in Whit­ing Bay are cel­e­brat­ing af­ter win­ning first prize in a com­pe­ti­tion for Na­tional Smile Month.

Putting on a raft of ac­tiv­i­ties from a bar­be­cue to an art com­pe­ti­tion and a sin­ga­long, the event, one of Cooriedoon’s largest yet, was judged as North Ayr­shire’s best.

Na­tional Smile Month is the UK’s largest cam­paign pro­mot­ing good oral health. In­di­vid­u­als, groups and or­gan­i­sa­tions, such as hos­pi­tals and care homes are in­vited to take part in the cam­paign ac­tiv­i­ties and to en­ter a com­pe­ti­tion for the best event.

Or­gan­iser Mau­reen Laya, health ad­vi­sor, wel­comed a mem­ber of the judg­ing panel who vis­ited Cooriedoon last week and pre­sented the staff with their first prize, cer­tifi­cate and gift. Mau­reen said: ‘We took a video of the cel­e­bra­tion and other events and sub­mit­ted it along with the Ban­ner fea­ture and we are de­lighted to have found out that we have been awarded first prize in the North Ayr­shire Cat­e­gory.’

Mau­reen Laya, Cooriedoon health ad­viser, cen­tre, along with res­i­dents and staff re­ceive their first prize from He­len Bruce of the North Ayr­shire oral health team.
