Rathmena House in Ballyclare held a barbeque to raise funds for the resident comfort fund and to give everyone who lives, visits or works in Rathmena House the chance to come together and have a great time! Rathmena’s manager, Methyl, welcomed all the visitors and friends of the home to what was the first function held since she joined Rathmena House,
Even though the weather wasn’t as kind as it could have been, everyone enjoyed the barbeque prepared by our chef Alan and his kitchen staff. The rest of the day was organised by our activities therapist Helen, and residents enjoyed ‘dancing’ to the music in the Rathmena dining room and singing along to those old time songs. We enjoyed a visit from the Music Lady who entertained all the residents, families and staff who attended. What we didn’t know was that we have talented singers among our staff and residents – it was a pleasure to see everyone so happy and joining in.
Local businesses donated gifts for the raffle and fun was had drawing the prizes – well done to all our winners and many thanks to all who contributed to this great afternoon.
