Remembrance Day Activities for the residents of Orchard Care Homes

15 November 2023 News

As Remembrance Day 2023 comes to an end, we take a look at how our care homes honoured those no longer with us. 

 Penwortham Grange and Lodge in Preston were joined by Rachael Mercer, a vocalist, who did a wonderful wartime themed performance to commemorate Remembrance Day. The residents sang along and came together to remember the ones we lost.


Residents at Green Park in Warrington took part in creating beautiful poppies to display on their poppy waterfall outside. A member of staff said ‘We have been sharing some wonderful stories around the war and we will never forgot the bravery and dedication of all involved’.


The residents of Archers Court, Sunderland spent the day making arts and crafts to decorate their home such as poppies and crosses, and later watched the remembrance day parade on the TV.

Thornton Hall and Lodge in Crosby, had an afternoon of painting poppies and some of the gents decided to take a trip out to the pub and celebrate by sharing stories of their youth with a pint.
