Galloping Glamour: Orchard Blythe Hosts a Thrilling Ladies’ Day at the Races

Orchard Blythe care home located in Coleshill, part of the Runwood Homes group, embraced the spirit of horse racing on the 18th of June, transforming the home into a vibrant racetrack for a spectacular Ladies’ Day event. This exhilarating celebration not only brought joy and excitement but also kicked off the Ascot season in true style.

Meanwhile, residents adorned themselves in stunning hats and fascinators, immersing themselves in the elegance of race day. Bets were placed, cheers rang out, and the air was filled with the aroma of strawberries and cream paired with sparkling bubbly.

The event was a true testament to the spirit of community at Orchard Blythe, where staff, residents, and families united to create unforgettable moments. Prizes were awarded for everything from winning bets to the best-dressed horse, adding a competitive edge and enhancing the festive atmosphere.
