On Friday 30th March staff, residents and relatives will be joining in national Wear a Hat Day to raise funds for the charity that seeks to find the cause of, and a cure for, brain tumours.
Home Manager Sarah Evans said: “A former resident of the home, Michael Hodges, died recently from a brain tumour, aged only 57. He was a lovely man, with a great sense of humour and he was popular with staff and residents alike.
“We wanted to do something to remember Michael and one of the team noticed that Wear a Hat Day was coming up. It seemed the perfect way to have some fun, raise some money and remember Michael.”
As well as raising money from donations for wearing hats, there will also be an opportunity for staff, residents and friends to buy cakes at a special coffee morning.
Sarah said: “Everyone is hunting for fun hats and, so far, we have everything from baseball caps to Stetsons!”
Station House is a 69-bed nursing home in Victoria Avenue, providing nursing care and support for frail older people and, in a separate unit, for older people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and other related illnesses.
