AYRSHIRE CARE HOME WINS TOP UK-WIDE COMPETITION

EPSON004An Ayrshire care home has scooped the top prize in a UK-wide poster competition run by a leading   charity.

Bupa’s Arran View care home in Saltcoats secured first place for its “Keep the party going all life long” poster as part of a competition for Six Point Foundation.

For its winning effort the care home will pick up a £500 donation towards a charity of its choice which benefits older people – and will also receive a £200 voucher to use in a local shop.

Activity Coordinator Dailin Spence worked with residents on the Arran View design, praised for its innovation and creativity.

Staff from Arran View will be travelling to London for the prize-giving event on March 24.

Sue Kedley, Manager at Bupa’s Arran View care home, is thrilled with the award win and is looking forward to the prize giving event.

 She said: “Everyone at the home was over the moon when we found out we won the competition.

           

“It’s a fantastic accomplishment for the residents and the home – and we can’t wait to have our winning entry proudly on display.

 

“We are looking forward to attending the prize giving event and can’t wait to fly the flag for Saltcoats down in London.”

The poster competition was set up by Six Point Foundation to give people the opportunity to think about, and celebrate, what is, and can be, done to make all older people’s (age 70+) lives better.

Posters were required to be a celebration of what is possible and achievable in making an older person have a better life.
