Ahoy me hearties! Regis residents along with some enthusiastic staff from Regis Greenbank aged care home organised a fundraiser for International Let’s Talk Like A Pirate Day.
Residents got involved, dressed up, and had a splendid time all the while raising funds for a well deserving cause! Lifestyle staff commented that they were overwhelmed with positive responses from residents with many beaming smiles from ear-to-ear.
Greenbank started preparations on 1st September with many residents relishing the chance to getting involved in the weekly pirate themed activities. On the day competition was fierce for the raffle prizes and the facility was adorned with colourful pirate theme posters designed by residents.
Lifestyle Coordinator Jackie says, “Residents and staff were excited to participate and many spent the day in pirate costumes. It was awesome to see the joy on residents’ faces with many describing it as the best day ever and residents lined up to get photos with staff.”
The annual International Let’s Talk like a Pirate Day gives the community a chance to support childhood cancer research and many staff and residents at Regis Greenbank aged care home have been directly affected by cancer so this day holds special significants.
