#Team Orange bring joy and entertainment to the elderly
Penny Appeal has been responding to the growing number of older people who experience loneliness by organising social visits and musical entertainment.
Their latest visit was to the Well Springs Nursing Home in Bradford where volunteers brought along entertainer Paul Whitehead. His performance of classic songs had residents singing and dancing along.
Sarah Ashraf, UK Programmes Officer at Penny Appeal, said: “Winter can be a difficult time for older people, particularly those with mobility issues,” With these social gatherings, we want to provide older people with a positive environment where they can have company, enjoy themselves and engage in conversation with young Muslims. During our visit, we had a chance to talk, at length, with the residents about their lives. We listened to their fascinating stories and were pleased to be given the opportunity to raise their spirits.”
Cath Davis, Manager of Well Springs Nursing Home said she had received great feedback from the residents who enjoyed themselves at the party.
