This week, Wren Park hosted an event as part of ‘Regard’s Afternoon Tea Week 2018.’
Across Regard, services have been getting involved in these events to raise money for Shelter, Regard’s chosen charity for this year.
Everyone from Wren Park was asked what theme they wanted and a Mad Hatters tea party was chosen, as the people we support thought this would be hilarious and that service manager Carmen should be the Queen of Hearts!
Yvonne Baxtrem, Client Benefits Caseworker attended the event. She said “What a fun day we had at Wren Park. It was great to meet Carmen and the team plus the people that we support and their families. The fancy dress theme was Alice in Wonderland complete with a Mad Hatters tea party with lots of nibbles and cakes. Carmen was the Queen of Hearts and Alison, one of the support workers was Alice. Thank you to all at Wren Park for a wonderful day – it is so good to visit the services!”
The themed party went down well with the people that we support, families and staff. Everyone joined in and staff and everyone at Wren Park had been busy ahead of the event making decorations including ‘eat me cakes’ and ‘drink me’ bottles.
Matt Francis and Matt Boyd from the Commercial Department in Kingston also visited for the event. Matt Francis said “Carmen and her staff’s passion and commitment were on full display during the afternoon and I really enjoyed the musical entertainment provided by Tony who lives at the service.”
Katherine, who is supported by the service made delicious cupcakes which went down a treat.
Everyone enjoyed themselves thoroughly and sang along and danced to music provided by Tony, who writes his own songs.
