Sanctuary Care and activities charity NAPA have held celebrations to mark their joint 20th anniversaries.
The leading care provider and national charity marked their joint milestone with a tea party at Sanctuary Care’s Ashley House Residential Care Home in Bordon, Hampshire.
Sanctuary Care’s Director of Operations, Sheila O’Connor, said: “This truly was a very special day and we are enormously proud to have marked this incredible milestone, providing care to our wonderful residents and their loved ones for two decades.
“Our teams and residents lie at the heart of everything we do and I know we will continue to keep kindness at the heart of our care for the next 20 years.”
NAPA’s Director Sylvie Silver said: “I was delighted when we discovered that Sanctuary Care shared a twentieth birthday with NAPA this year. The celebration tea at Ashley House was the perfect way to mark the occasion as we like nothing better than seeing residents enjoying themselves. The staff team had gone to tremendous lengths to set the scene and ensure that there was something on offer for everyone to join in with.”
Home manager Margaret Powell added: “Traditionally afternoon tea was – and still is – a highlight for so many of our residents – an occasion where you get the best china out to welcome your guests, so we were thrilled to welcome Sheila and Sylvie along for this wonderful occasion.”
Sanctuary Care will be marking its anniversary with a series of celebrations over the coming months with its residents, their loved ones and teams in its care homes and hospital service.
