Sunshine, songs and sausage rolls all played a part in helping our residents and their families celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in style with a party at Broughton House Veteran Care Village – the first big event we’ve held since before the pandemic.
More than 50 people enjoyed the occasion, which took place in our function room and delightful garden amid the bright sunshine.
This was the first time our new Veterans’ mess has been open to residents friends and family.
Our in-house chefs prepared a scrumptious Jubilee buffet which included sausage rolls, pork pies, sandwiches, trifle and Black Forest gateau.
Musical entertainment was provided by the Monton Voices Choir, and Tracey from our own wellbeing team. Tracey sang hits from the 1970s and 80s and led a chorus of Happy Birthday in honour of Broughton House resident Jean Mack, who was celebrating her 90th birthday.
Much-loved Jean served in the Royal Navy and was a volunteer at Broughton House throughout the 1990s helping to care for the residents on excursions around the country.
The Jubilee party also featured a raffle with a range of prizes, including a rugby ball signed by the Salford Red Devils team amongst other various items.
A wonderful and memorable occasion was rounded off with the singing of the National Anthem by the Monton Voices Choir, which was echoed around the home by staff and residents alike.
As you can see from the below photographs, the event was a great success and everyone involved had a super time!
