Activities at Thackeray House

Our Activities Coordinators are dedicated to enhancing residents' quality of life by providing regular social and psychological stimulation. The activities can be undertaken in groups or ‘one-to-one’ and are based on individual preferences. We have a varied programme, with the goal of appealing to the interests and capabilities of all residents as best as possible. For example, there's pottery, baking, Scrabble, art classes, exercise sessions and much more. The Activities Coordinators also organise visits from entertainers, local groups, including school choirs, religious services and outings on the minibus.

Monks Orchard School Choir

The children from Monks Orchard Primary School visited Thackeray House and sang a wide variety of Christmas songs. Many residents and staff joined in with the singing and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Afterwards, the children mingled with residents, talking and laughing together. Overall, the event was a great success!

Our Deepest Condolences

Many Thackeray House residents have lived in Croydon all their lives and felt very strongly that they wanted to express their sympathies to the families who have lost a loved one and those who were injured in the recent tram trash. So, a small group, consisting of residents, staff and relatives, represented the home and visited the site to lay a bouquet of flowers.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

Thackeray House residents and staff raised £111.00 for Macmillan Cancer Support on the 30th September 2016, by providing refreshments and cakes to commuters outside the home.

The cakes were baked and decorated by both residents and staff and the Head Chef prepared croissants and pastries and a baked fruit cake was used for the ‘Guess the Weight’ competition.

The home would like to thank the commuters for their very generous donations and enjoyable conversations.

O Sun, Where Art Thou?

Although we have not had much sun this summer, the residents of Thackeray House are keen to go out into the garden and enjoy the new patio when the sun does decide to pop its little head out.
