To mark the centenary of the World War 1, residents from RMBI care home Albert Edward Prince of Wales Court in Mid Glamorgan have been planting poppy seeds in the grounds of the Home.
The Homes poppy planting activity is part of a larger scheme organised by the Porthcawl Shout Forum who have arranged for residents of the town to plant thousands of Flanders Poppies throughout Porthcawl.
Flanders poppies are an internationally recognised symbol of remembrance because they bloomed on the battlefields of Belgium and France during the war.
RMBI care home Connaught Court in York was delighted to receive the donation of a new organ from "The Charles and Elsie Sykes Trust" fund. To mark the donation, the Home held a blessing on 14 July in their chapel. The service was conducted by reverend W.Bro, Frank A Chappell along with the Home’s Chaplain, Christine Sawyer.
Present at the service was Rt.W.Bro Jeffrey Gillyon, the PGM of Yorkshire, North and East Riding. Rt.W.Bro Graham Ives, PGM of Lincolnshire and Rt.W.Bro, David Pratt of Yorkshire West Riding.
On 12 July, residents and staff at RMBI care home, Devonshire Court in Leicester were delighted to receive a brand new Lenovo touch screen tablet, generously donated by the Edward Sherrier Lodge.
To celebrate this donation, the Lodge hosted a tea party at the Home for residents and staff members.
The new equipment will enable residents to send and receive emails, surf the net, skype friends and family members, listen to music and share photographs.
