Veterans charity launches Share a Smile campaign
July 2020 | Veterans charity launches Share a Smile campaign
A NEW campaign aimed at bringing a smile to the faces of Royal Star & Garter residents is being launched ahead of Armed Forces Day (June 27).  
Share a Smile invites members of the public to send in homemade videos aimed at bringing cheer to veterans cared for by the charity. 
Submissions received so far include magic tricks, dancing dogs and musical performances. 
Share a Smile follows the success of Royal Star & Garter's Letters with Love campaign, which has brought much warmth and love to residents after the Homes paused visits from family members and entertainers in March.  
It is also inspired by school pupil Jemima, whose piano-playing videos entertain residents in the Surbiton Home. 
Pauline Shaw, director of care at the charity, said: 'These videos will mean so much to the residents, who have been unable to see loved ones for such a long time.  
'Letters with Love brought them an incredible amount of joy during a very difficult time, and I know Share a Smile will do the same.'
Hats off to residents celebrating Royal Ascot
July 2020 | Hats off to residents celebrating Royal Ascot
ALL bets were off as a Canterbury care home got crafty and made their own hats and fascinators for a Royal Ascot-themed fun day. 
Residents at Highfield had shared their stories about previous visits to horse and dog racing venues, and with the help of activities co-ordinator Claire Handcock, decided to recreate the annual event. 
A main staple of Royal Ascot is, of course, the eye-catching headwear, and not wanting to be left out, the residents spent an afternoon creating fantastic fascinators and terrific top hats. 
During the morning, residents played a horse racing game with 50 matchsticks each, and Rita Turner was the outright winner, claiming around 90 per cent of everyone else's matchsticks. 
In the afternoon, everyone at Highfield sat down to watch the actual racing from Ascot on television, without making any bets, but picking prospective winners between them.
