West Oak gets creative for good cause

30th April 2007

Residents at West Oak care home in Berkshire have been showing off their creative skills for a good cause this month.

Staff and residents came together to raise money for Naomi House Children's Hospice by making cards.

The residents sold their creations and made £100 for the charity. Sara Barker, home manager at West Oak, presented a giant cheque to Sue Balchin - a representative from Naomi House.

Residents and relatives gathered to watch the presentation and hear the latest news from Naomi House.

Naomi House is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year.

The creativity of West Oak residents did not end there, as eight residents prepare for the Elderly Accommodation Council's over-60s art competition.

The aim of the competition is to promote the artistic abilities of older people. Judging will take place in June and the residents are hopeful their entry will catch the judges' eye.
