September activities from Kingswood care homeThis September at HC-One’s Pennwood Lodge care home have been involved in all sorts of wonderful activities and events including hosting a Macmillan coffee morning and celebrating National Fitness Day. 

On 29th September, Relatives and the local community were invited to join Colleagues and Residents for the annual Macmillan coffee morning and cake sale.

A variety of cakes were made by the home’s Head Chef and local business ‘Holli's Bakes and Cakes.’

The event raised £70 for this fabulous cause.

Home Manager, said, “It was lovely seeing the community come and join us to raise money for MacMillan. The atmosphere was filled with laughter and joy.”

On 20th Sep, Pennwood Lodge celebrated National Fitness Day by spending the day thinking and doing all things fitness related. 

During the morning, Residents took part in some gentle relaxation exercises to music as part of their body and soul activity plan. In the afternoon, Residents were then visited by Rosie, who visits monthly to do a singing and exercise session.

Julie, Wellbeing Coordinator, said, “It was lovely to see so many Residents engaging in the activity. Residents enjoyed singing some old favourites while doing the gentle exercises. Shelia and Mary (Residents) both commented on how lovely and enjoyable the afternoon was.”
