West Oak residents show off artistic flair

23rd March 2007

A group of West Oak care home residents have been working together to produce their entry for an art competition.

Eight of the residents at the home in Wokingham have been meeting regularly to contribute to the home's entry.

The entry itself is based around activities going on at the home including games and celebrations such as Valentine's Day, along with fundraising events which residents have been involved with.

The competition, run by the Elderly Accommodation Council, will be judged on June 27th at the Mall Gallaries in London.

The art awards aim to celebrate and promote the artistic flair of the elderly, as well as providing a stimulating activity in which people can work together.

The competition has been running for over ten years.

Residents' creative flair has also been put towards making cards to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Naomi House Children's Hospice.

Residents sold the cards they made and will be presenting a cheque to Naomi House on April 12th.
