A Walton-on-Thames care home is organising a “day of fun” for Comic Relief.

Anchor’s Glendale care home on Ambleside Avenue is raising money by hosting a range of activities for residents – including an egg and spoon race, a tombola and face painting for Comic Relief.

A live music act has also been organised to entertain residents and visitors during the day.

All activities are being held in aid of the Comic Relief - the national charity taking place today (March 18), which raises money to help people live free from poverty, violence, and discrimination.

Akua Buabeng, Manager at Anchor’s Glendale care home said: “We’re really excited to be raising money for Comic Relief.

“Not only are these events raising money for a good cause, they’re also a lot of fun for our residents to take part in and for us to organise!

“We’re proud to do our part for Comic Relief.

“Our residents at Anchor’s Glendale care home are always keen to help good causes.

“Meaningful activities also help with our residents’ physical and mental well-being.”

Andrew Porter, 95, a resident of Anchor’s Glendale care home, said he was “looking forward” to having a fun-filled day with lots of laughter with all the other residents and the team there.

He said: “The day will be a lot of fun, all in aid of a really important cause. There’s always a lot of great events here.

“I’ve always liked to raise money for Comic Relief and other charities and I’m really glad I can keep doing so while living at Anchor’s Glendale care home.”
