Doncaster care homes compete in regional sports day at Ivy Court care home

Ivy Court care home hosted their very first regional sports day and picnic on Friday the 4th of August.

The care home was in competition with their sister care homes, Rowena House, Oldfield HouseLiberty House and Laureate Court in the heart of Doncaster.

All homes invited residents and staff to compete in this year’s family fun day.

The sports day was a perfect opportunity for Runwood Homes residents and employees to build connections with each other and most importantly of all, enjoy a day full of fun and laughter.

The residents at the care home competed with one another in a variety of fun filled activities, including egg and spoon race, water duck race, bean bag toss, hoop and cone toss.

The team members at each home put their competitive streak to the test, as they went head-to-head in a sack race and three-legged race.

There was a picnic with live entertainment from local singer, Brian, ending the day with certificates and medals for their participation on the day.

Leeanne Craddock, Wellbeing Dementia Director for the North, said: It was great to get our wonderful residents, staff, families, and the community together for a day of fun and friendships with a little competition.

At Runwood Homes our resident’s wellbeing is our number one priority.  We believe that getting involved with the community is vital for our residents to feel life can still be as fun as it was before they came into our care.”
