A traditional Burns supper at Birmingham care homeResidents enjoyed an evening of food, poetry, music and decorations for Burns Night this year at HC-One’s Hodge Hill Grange care home in Hodge Hill.

Colleagues and Residents spent the morning decorating the home with tartan bunting, Scottish flags and posters, before listening to bagpipe music and readings of Scottish poetry.

At dinner time, the haggis was duly addressed and Residents could tuck into their traditional Burns supper. For many, it was their first time tasting haggis.

One Resident commented: “This is lovely, thank you for doing this. I just need some whisky now!”

After the day’s festivities, Residents relaxed in the lounge with Scottish shortbread and a hot cup of tea while they chatted and swapped stories about their trips to Scotland.

Hodge Hill Wellbeing Coordinator, Kevin Allen, commented: “I’m over the moon that it all went well and Residents could do something in their lives for the very first time.

“It’s so nice to introduce Residents to another culture and gain a new life experience.”
