Summer Picnic for Clients, Care Professional and their families.

On Saturday 9th September, Clients, Care Professional and their families were invited to join the Annual Summer Picnic held at the Manor House Community Centre in Leicester.

The team from Home Instead West Leicestershire & Market Bosworth rolled up their sleeves and made it a very special day for the valued Clients and the Care Professionals both of whom brought their families to enjoy a day of fun, food and companionship. It was a fabulous day and the weather was absolutely perfect.

Care professional Fiona got crafty, giving the elderly clients and children the opportunity to make their own jewellery. Another member of the team, Community Lead Shilpa, kindly donated prizes and ran the ‘win every time’ tombola.

A wonderful array of food was laid out for all to enjoy, followed by specially made Home Instead cupcakes.

Much fun packed afternoon was attended by local councillor Nick Chapman, The Vice Chairman of Blaby District Council, Beverly Greenwood of Glenfield Parish Council, a LOROS Hospice volunteer Glen Greenwood, Jenny and David from Inspired to Care and Daisy from the Department of Work and Pensions Leicestershire.

The tombola and raffle organised by our Community Lead, Shilpa raised an impressive £111.30 which the company are donating to Home Instead UK Charities. Home Instead Charities exist to bring happiness and joy into the lives of our ageing population through peer support lunch clubs, art clubs and music therapy groups.

Commenting on the uplifting event, co-owner of Home Instead West Leicestershire & Market Bosworth Nisha Chandarana said, “We are committed to giving back and creating a sense of family and community. Events like this remind us why we do what we do. Thank you to everyone who joined us. The weather was perfect, and everyone enjoyed coming together!”
