Party Time In Clackmannanshire

Party Time In Clackmannanshire

Around 80 people – patients, carers and families – attended the annual garden party organised by Ward 1 at Clackmannanshire Community Healthcare Centre. Despite the rain, Senior Charge Nurse Julie Kennedy said feedback had been excellent.  She said: “It was good to see the patients really happy. Many had made their own hats to sit outside in the garden, and a member of staff provided beautiful floral arrangements for the tables. The flowers were then shared between patients who placed them in tea cups besides their beds.

“The garden party is a real team effort and the results are very rewarding.”

One patient, Donald Russell from Alloa, read out some of the poems he had written and presented the ward with a book he had made.

Live music was provided by Callum Wallace through Music in Hospitals. He played guitar and sang requested songs which led to a spot of dancing in the ward gardens! A tombola, guess the teddy bear’s birthday and a photo booth were among other attractions, along with a visit by therapet Iona.

Those present tucked into an afternoon tea of sandwiches, sausage rolls, cakes and fresh fruit, and money raised from the event will go towards new garden furniture for the ward garden.
