For many across the world, Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee was a truly monumental occasion of celebration. At Friends of the Elderly, we have been fortunate to receive Her Majesty’s support for 69 years, as Patron of our charity. We were delighted to join the celebrations as our care homes and services marked the special event. Here are some highlights:
Planting Trees for the Jubilee
The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) is a tree planting initiative created to mark her Platinum Jubilee. People across the United Kingdom were encouraged to ‘Plant a Tree for the Jubilee’, and our care homes were eager to get involved.
Orford House, New Copford Place, The Lawn and RNNH care home residents gathered at their own events and held tree planting ceremonies. They were excited to not only take part in the Platinum Jubilee initiative, but to create a long-lasting legacy at their home that will last for generations to come.
Parties and Celebrations at our care homes and services
Over the bank holiday weekend, our care homes and services pulled out all the stops to make sure residents enjoyed fun-filled celebrations.
At Little Bramingham Farm care home, residents celebrated The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with a party, including live entertainment from talented singer Aimi P. Orford House care home residents came together in their beautiful garden and enjoyed the sunshine whilst tucking into a delicious afternoon tea. At RNNH care home, after residents planted their tree as part of The Queen’s Green Canopy initiative, they enjoyed a wonderful garden party with delicious food and entertainment. Bernard Sunley care home residents used their creative talents to make their own crowns, which they wore during their celebrations.
