Redcar care home celebrates Black History MonthResidents at HC-One’s Roseberry Court care home in Redcar have been educating themselves and black history during October and have been celebrating all that is great about the culture.

On Friday 2nd October, Residents enjoyed reading the amazingly talented Joshua Beckford’s poem, ‘Saving Mother Earth’. Residents also sat down and read about the Windrush Generation and how it impacted so many lives. 

Colleagues really engaged with Residents and encouraged them to think about the Windrush scandal and how many people were affected by having records destroyed by the government and then been falsely classed as illegal immigrants.

Roseberry Court Resident, Peggy Cheung said: “The Windrush story is very powerful. I loved reading the poem from that amazing young boy.”

Resident Lilly Wright-Bellamy said: “Can you imagine doing your very best for your country and then being classed as an illegal immigrant?” 

Joe Presho, Roseberry Court Home Manager said: “Residents really enjoyed learning the history about the Windrush Generation.”
