The summer holidays are a fantastic opportunity to welcome local families to Badgers Wood Care Home for some fun activities. Our residents love spending time with children and families from Drayton and the surrounding area. What better way to have some fun in the sun, than with a good old sports day!
Our Intergenerational Sports Day featured a disability-inclusive relay race, bean bag throwing and an egg and spoon race.
Anne Riches, Badgers Wood Care Home’s Registered Manager said: “there are no barriers to joining in this type of activity. Even sports day events can be made inclusive to everyone, regardless of ability or age. Events like these prove it!”
Resident, Peter Chamberlain said “what a wonderful way to spend the day, with these lovely children, hearing their laughter, and having sports day fun together. Growing old isn’t so bad on days like today.”
Fellow resident, Joan Frost added “I didn’t think I could do these activities, but I won second place, so it looks like I can!”
