Whitgift Care Challenge Spring 2019


Four Whitgift Care teams went head-to-head to be crowned the Whitgift Care Challenge Champions on Wednesday 27th March 2019.

Participants from Wilhelmina House, Whitgift House, 1596 Club and The Whitgift Almshouses worked together in teams to complete word games, quizzes and jigsaw puzzles that the Activities Coordinators had planned and organised.

The challenges included a 32-piece building block activity, music quiz and a giant building block puzzle that contestants had to complete whilst blindfolded.

The afternoon was a great opportunity for residents to catch up, socialise and meet new people from across Whitgift Care.

As the challenge came to an end the points were calculated, and it was soon clear that there was a draw. The Spring 2019 winners were Whitgift House Sheltered and 1596 Club, The Whitgift Almshouses and Wilhelmina House finished as runners up. Before everyone said their farewells, everyone sang together gleefully, ‘We’ll meet again’by Vera Lynn.

Many thanks to Wilhelmina House for hosting the challenge and to all the hard work and time that the Activities Coordinators and Care Officers put in to organise such a great afternoon full of fun and laughter.

Whitgift Almshouses resident said: “The Whitgift Care Challenge is always a great afternoon. Not only do we have fun competing, but we all enjoy catching up with friends from the other care homes.”

1596 Club member: “This is the first challenge I’ve taken part in. Such a fun idea and a great way to meet everyone.”
