Big birthday bash for Cannock care home residents

The care team at Littleton Lodge care home in Cannock have organised a big birthday bash for four of its residents.

Audrey Allsopp, Florence Acton, Barbara Smith and Rita Mills all celebrated their birthdays within the same week and so the care team decided to plan a big birthday party so that they could all celebrate together, along with their friends and carers at Littleton Lodge.

Audrey celebrated her 97th birthday on 25th January, Florence turned 95 on 24th January, Barbara celebrated 84 years on 26th January and Rita turned 95 on 22ndJanuary.

The care team organised lots of fun and games throughout the day, including a pinata and a ‘Guess the Baby’ competition where members of team brought in photos of themselves as babies for the residents to identify. Staff and residents also joined in with lots of singing and dancing to the ‘Hokey Cokey’.

To round off the party, the four birthday ladies were treated to a special afternoon tea and a huge birthday cake.

Home manager, Rachel Ellis, said: “I was wonderful to be able to organise a special joint birthday surprise for our four birthday ladies and we all had a wonderful time celebrating with them.

“The ‘Guess the Baby’ quiz was a big hit because our residents all have such a close relationship with the care team so they loved seeing photos of them all as babies. There will be more birthday fun coming up soon at Littleton Lodge so we’re already busy plotting our next birthday surprise.”
