They say you’re never too old to learn.
And that has definitely been the case in the run-up to Broomgrove Nursing Home’s 50th anniversary summer fayre.
Residents and day care users at the home off Ecclesall Road have been busy honing their craft-making skills in a bid to raise money for the charity’s entertainment fund.
Much of the activity has been coordinated by Liz Harrison who looks after the day care facilities.
She said: “I’ve been bowled over by the enthusiasm of users and residents. They’ve been very eager to learn and do their bit for Broomgrove. They’ve been undertaking everything from crochet to painting. And now their work will be on sale at our craft stall at the summer fayre.”
The free event will takew place on Saturday, July 27, from 2pm to 4pm.
There will also be a cake stall, tombola, raffle, strawberry cream teas and, weather allowing, a barbecue.
The home, which is a registered charity, first opened its doors in 1963.
