Bonfire night was better without the bangs

6 November 2019

People enjoying Bonfire Night

Staff and service users across our charity got together to enjoy a series of brilliant Bonfire Night celebrations – without a single firework being lit.

At our Holy Cross Nursing Home in Sunderland, our residents had great fun re-living their childhood by making a guy and enjoyed a spectacular firework display on the big screen in the warmth of their activities room. The cosy atmosphere was boosted with a Bonfire Night feast of jacket potatoes with warming chilli con carne or hot dogs, followed by some pretty bonfire-themed cupcakes.

Tasty treats took centre stage for our St Catherine's Nursing Home residents in Newcastle, too, with a delicious collection of chocolate covered ‘sparkler' marshmallows and slices of traditional toffee apple. The tasty treats evoked lots of memories that our residents shared about their childhood Guy Fawkes experiences.

Over in Ashington, regulars at our resource centre for adults with learning disabilities, Parkhead, proudly showed off their massive firework artwork and enjoyed home-baked, firework-themed cupcakes and scones.

A fantastic time was had by all, and no-one missed the bangs!
