Meet our Activities Coordinator, Dawn Shackles

I joined Cherry Trees with a personal goal to enrich the lives and minds of a generation that deserves our care, consideration and compassion.

I feel a need to throw open the windows of their minds and flood it with light and fresh air; windows that may be clouded, shut or even locked by time or illness.

This is a new road for me; I came from a background entertaining children, so this is indeed a challenge, but it’s one I’m willing to give my all to.

Activities at Cherry Trees

Our activities team are constantly striving to mentally and physically stimulate those we support by organising group and individual social events for anyone and everyone to participate in. There are regular outings in the minibus to nearby places of interest, including the local theatre, as well as visits from PAT dogs, musicians and entertainers. We also host pizza & quiz afternoons that we encourage relatives to come to. Activities are one of the most important aspects of a care home, so it is essential that our team are dedicated to ensuring that residents are entertained, and that life at Cherry Trees is fun and active.
