There was ‘food, glorious food’ galore at a musical-themed fun day for Bromley care home tenants – but it wasn’t for eating.

The event, which saw residents with learning and physical disabilities dress up as characters from Oliver!, Carousel and Shrek, included a fast-paced egg-and-spoon race.

Johnson Court and Park Road, run by Sanctuary Supported Living joined five other homes for the fifth annual “Shire” (Sanctuary Helping Involve Residents Equally) fun day in Bordon, Hampshire, last month.

Basketball, skittles and javelin throwing were also on offer.

Organiser and area service manager Pat Ranson said: “By introducing the theme of musicals to this year’s Shire fun day, we’ve been able to see just how creative our residents can get.”
