On Saturday residents from Spring Lodge residential home attended ‘The Artichoke Collection Fashion Show held in a neighbouring village of Holbrook.
Gemma Dennis the Deputy Manager originally saw an advert looking for models for a local fashion show & thought I know some amazing ladies who would love to take part from our care home. So emailed the organisers, Jacqui Martin, and Norma Rook, & it just happens that Jacqui’s mother resides in Spring Lodge care home. So joined forces & had a wonderful morning strutting on the catwalk.
The two residents from Spring were Pat Thomas aged 80 said she had a “Lovely morning and loved the attention of being on the catwalk.” Kate Suckling aged 93 said, “I was over the moon & it made me feel young again!”
Gemma Dennis the Deputy Manager said “We had a lovely pamper morning, with makeup, hairdressing & beautiful clothing. Just because you are in a care home, fashion can still be very much part of who we are & make us all feel great! Our residents had a fabulous time & we will definitely be doing something like this again!”
