We have many touching stories of our residents from around our four care homes in Bristol and we’d love to share some with you.

Special Trip for Special Ruby at Field House

One of our beautiful residents Ruby from Field House had a lovely time visiting the Whitehall garden centre last week.

Ruby had a great time because there were beautiful Christmas displays, real reindeer, and a gift shop.

She also enjoyed lunch out with our minibus team and fellow residents

Margaret, our famous knitter at Glebe House

Margaret has recently revealed an interesting skill that she had not revealed to anyone at Glebe House. When she revealed it to the other residents and staff members at Glebe House, everyone in the room was amazed.

Margaret has been a longtime knitter who has participated in several competitions as well as knitted for charities. She shared her book with newspaper articles that showed her and her collection of knitted characters.

Margaret’s hands are no longer flexible enough for her to knit, but she still thinks back on all the love and happiness she has given to so many people.

Margaret, you truly are amazing.

Iranian New Year Celebration for Nax at Beech House

It was a special occasion for Naz at Beech House because it was the Iranian New Year.
Naz is originally from Iran, and Louisa, who is well-known throughout our homes, specifically arranged a session to commemorate this.

Louisa chose traditional Iranian objects to represent good luck in the new year. She played Iranian music, which Naz and her fellow residents thoroughly enjoyed.

Thank you, Louisa, for your valuable input and making a difference.

Excellent work Quarry House

Our staff and residents at Quarry House have recently had a cake sale to raise money for the Sense Charity.

The second fundraising event was a sponsored walk from Bitton Railway towards Saltford.

In the gorgeous sunshine, staff and residents strolled along the cycle path. They sang songs like “I would walk 500 miles” and “Lambeth walk.”

Brian, who used to volunteer a lot for many charities, found great meaning in Quarry’s fundraising. He is super proud to be a part of it.

Following the walk, the group took a well-deserved lunch break.

Sponsorships are still flowing in, and we are grateful to everyone who has contributed to this worthwhile cause.

Rhys Brown, son-in-law of Quarry’s home manager Tina, will be taking part in the London Marathon this month, running for this charity. We wish him the best of luck!
