THE Harvey Centre will be visiting Alexandra House Care Home on Tuesday 28th November between 2.00pm – 3.30pm, to offer residents some Christmas cheer. The Centre proactively approached Alexandra House about running this event and has arranged all activity.

Working alongside Pets’ Corner, the centre has arranged for a real life reindeer to come to Alexandra House and meet residents. The team at The Harvey Centre understand that this sector of society often love interacting with animals so felt this would be the perfect attraction for this event. Pets’ Corner has kindly arranged this for no cost.

To create the ultimate nostalgic Christmas atmosphere, the Henry Moore Primary School Choir will be performing Christmas carols. There will also be delectable delights at the event for residents to enjoy, which the centre arranged with Tesco to provide for free. These include mince pies, mulled wine, biscuits and tea. The Tesco team will be at the event to hand out the goodies.

It wouldn’t be Christmas without presents so the team at The Harvey Centre has also purchased some gifts to hand out at the event. These include deodorant and hand cream sets. The centre has also purchased some larger gifts that can remain at Alexandra House in the communal lounge areas long term. These include games such as Snakes and Ladders, Giant Connect 4, large print playing cards, balloon volleyball and a giant inflatable Hoopla game.

Bryan Young, Centre Manager at The Harvey Centre says, “This is a really important sector of society so we wanted to do something special for them this year. We have put in a lot of time to consider appropriate entertainment, gifts and music for the event and arranged all activity ourselves to make the event extra special. We can’t wait to see the reactions of the residents – especially when they get to meet a real-life reindeer. What a fabulous way to start Christmas!”
