VE Day at Westerlands
Posted on May 20, 2015
Earlier this month residents and staff at Westerlands elderly care home celebrated VE Day to mark 70 years since the end of the Second World War in Europe. The day was a wonderful opportunity for everyone to share memories and stories with each other, and there was plenty of music and dancing too. Roseyln Shallcross and a duo called Flashback both performed to much applause, and the dance floor was set for those who wanted to get up and wave their union jacks! There was plenty for everyone to eat as well. In true British tradition, the home laid out an impressive cake sale, and hotdogs and burgers were also available throughout the day, which suited the hot weather perfectly! Along with the raffle and the tombola, the event helped to raise £200.00 in total and Home Manager, Hannah Cawsey, couldn’t be more thrilled: ‘VE Day was absolutely brilliant… It was a good team effort’. She was delighted that staff came in on their days off especially to join in and lend a helping a hand, and the day was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone involved.
