Last year we introduced our very first ‘Deck the Halls’ competition, across all of our homes, with each home being asked to festively decorate their home, with the best entrants winning a range of prizes.  The competition proved such a success with residents and staff that we decided to hold the competition again and we had another great year throughout all of our 14 homes. 

A huge well done to the winning home, Heatherdale in Northumberland with their innovative and festively decorated home with Santa’s grotto.  They won £250 cash to add to their Residents Fund and they will be keeping the engraved ‘Deck the Halls’ trophy until next year.

Our runners up were Ryton Towers in Gateshead and St George’s in Washington.  They each won £50 cash to add to their Residents Fund.

Well done to all of our homes and Merry Christmas.
