All of Signature’s care homes have an activities team offering a range of activities for residents to get involved in. Signature at the Beeches residents were joined by Stacey Solomon to produce creative Christmas crafts as part of her Craft Your Own Christmas show.
The luxury care home in Brentwood welcomed the TV star as millions across the nation tuned at 8pm on 15th December on to see the home’s colourful creations. As part of her show, Stacey was joined by residents as they showcased their skills. The group produced three different crafts which included knitted pom-poms, festive sewing and homemade Christmas cards. Working with the local Age UK, the cards created have been sent to recipients the charity supports in the community.
Stacey’s visit concluded with her leading some carol singing, a rousing rendition of ‘We Wish You A Merry Christmas’, from the home’s grand piano. Stacey built a lovely bond with our residents, and she is more than welcome to come back anytime to visit the friends she has made at the Beeches. Our residents loved it— Stacey brought back fond Christmas memories with our residents and helped them create a few Christmas crafts. She was even kind enough to bring us some extra crafts she had made prior to her visit!
Ellie Cairns, Client Liaison Manager, at Signature at The Beeches said: “We were thrilled to have Stacey Solomon come and spend time with us for a spot of Christmas crafting. It was great to see our residents join in the festive spirit, and to see the positive impact crafting and other creative activities has on their wellbeing. Ensuring the community could enjoy our creations was equally important, and recognises that giving back to others is a key part of Christmas.”
June Miller, a resident, at Signature at The Beeches said: “It was wonderful to get involved with Stacey and create crafts together. We had a lovely day together and look forward to hopefully seeing her again soon.”
We hope the viewers enjoyed our contribution to Stacey’s show.
