British Themed BBQ 2019 KFOur Annual Summer BBQ with a British Theme. Our goal is to showcase our Outstanding Home, Kingfishers and to raise money for chosen Charities - CODA Music and Solent Dolphin. We raised £57.00 for our mini raffle. Staff dressed up for the occasion, great BBQ dishes (sausages, beef burgers, pork ribs and chicken strips) with coleslaw, salad and yummy dessert- fresh strawberries with ice cream and a swirl chocolate on top, was served by Paddy and the team. Everyone enjoyed a glass of Pimms, red wine & white wine too. Rose Arcellana, Companionship Team Leader commented, " The British weather can be somewhat temperamental, where we have to wear sunglasses and wellies at the same time, so we have plan B!  We stayed indoors. Our Residents and guests enjoyed the entertainment by the Land Girls followed by a Special Dance Number from Residents and Staff then the raffle after. Everyone had a fantastic time!". Resident - Val Collinge, also said,  "I had the best and most memorable BBQ experience so far even though the sun wasn't shone on the day. The Land Girls were great and the dancing was brilliant, I am very proud to be part of it."
