Nursing home hosts picnic party to support food bank

Staff at Park View Nursing Home, in Ullet Road, Liverpool, hosted a teddy bears’ picnic party as an opportunity to collect food for their local food bank.

Residents, friends, families and people from the local community were invited to the event at the Kingsley Healthcare home and had a fantastic afternoon enjoying entertainment, drinks and a delicious picnic.

The home managed to collect a car full of food to donate to South Liverpool Foodbank which supports the community surrounding the nursing home.

One in five of the UK population currently lives below the poverty line and South Liverpool Foodbank has fed over 10,000 during the last year.

A few of the residents visited the local Tesco store to spend a donation from Kingsley Healthcare and Tesco also generously contributed a trolley full of donations for the foodbank.

Regional activities co-ordinator Jodie Solaiman said: “Not only did the residents contribute towards a great cause but the experience of going into a supermarket was beneficial in many ways as it encouraged normality and independence.

“It was great to be able to give something to the people in need, our residents especially loved shopping for the food as they knew they would be helping people less fortunate than us. The picnic party was full of laughs and smiles and the chefs went above and beyond to provide individual picnics for everyone.”
