Father Christmas paid a visit to Whitgift House to meet residents, friends and family for the much-anticipated Christmas coffee morning on Tuesday 10 December.
The Home’s Common Room was full of festive cheer when residents enjoyed games, gifts and generous helpings of Christmas cake whilst Father Christmas delivered a gift to each resident, leaving a smile on their faces.
Residents took part in a Christmas raffle winning wonderful prizes, including chocolate, wine, fancy glassware and Christmas biscuits.
Resident, Jeanne said: “It’s been a wonderful morning together – I’ve won fantastic raffle prizes, it’s great! With so many biscuits, they will keep me going ‘til 2016!”
A Christmas stall was very popular selling pamper bath sets, residents’ homemade Christmas cakes and biscuits, with proceeds going to the Home’s social fund.
Ivy, resident at Whitgift House, spoke about the products on sale: “There’s lots of bits and pieces for sale which are great for Christmas gifts.”
