On the day, the home was adorned with black and red d├ęcor to recreate a true Vegas atmosphere, while residents put on their glad-rags to beat the house in casino staples such as roulette.

To top it off, players were treated to homemade mocktails specially prepared by the Bowes House team.

Linda, a resident at Bowes House, said: “It was great fun! I really enjoyed trying the roulette, and the mocktails were delicious.”

Home Manager at Bowes House, Ryan Harris, said: “We are always looking to plan interesting and exciting activities here at Bowes House, and when one team member suggested bringing the casino to residents, we all agreed it was a fantastic idea. 

“Our pop-up casino was a great opportunity for residents to reminisce about fun times of days gone by. It proved to be a real success, and you could see from residents’ reactions just how much they enjoyed playing the different games and trying to beat the house – all while enjoying homemade mocktails.

“The team went all in on this event, so it was fantastic to see the smiles on everyone’s faces.”
