Care Home Gear Up for Pride-Themed Family Fun Day

Residents from De Brook Lodge care home in Flixton are inviting their community to their Pride-themed Summer Fair on Saturday 19th August from 10:00 until 16:00.

All are welcome to join the care home to enjoy live entertainment, stalls from local businesses, funfair games, a BBQ, a traditional ice-cream van, and lots of family activities.

With a special performance from a couple of popular drag artists, this is sure to be a Pride celebration not to be missed.

88-year-old De Brook Lodge resident, Fay Kitt, said, ‘I have never seen a drag artist before, I’m really looking forward to it! I think it’s lovely that our home always includes everyone.’

Alan Eyres, the Home Manager at De Brook Lodge, added,

‘We’re all very excited to celebrate our Pride-themed Summer Fair this year. It’s so important to remember that many of our residents are from a generation where they could not be openly part of the LGBTQ+ community, so we really value being a care home that is so inclusive.’
