A care home in north Leeds is holding a free tea dance for the community to celebrate Silver Sunday.
Sabourn Court in Roundhay is inviting pensioners, their families and friends to the Oakwood Grove home on Sunday October 2 from 2pm.
There will be vintage dancing, performances from Leeds University dancers and a traditional afternoon tea. Silver Sunday aims to reduce loneliness and social isolation among older people by providing social activities for them
Sabourn Court manager Mark Rice-Thomson said:
“We know loneliness is a growing issue for older people. It’s great that we are in a position to support Silver Sunday by holding events at our care home, to offer older members of our community somewhere they can enjoy a fun activity in the company of others. I know our residents are looking forward to welcoming some new faces on the day.”
Guests do not need to be connected to a resident of the home to attend.
