Every Friday a faithful group of the Age Concern Residential Home Volunteer Team visit the Care Home in Rojales to take many British and International residents of the home out for a stroll around the town. They stop for coffee but, more importantly, converse in their own language to our volunteers. On Friday 13th December, as in every year for the past 15 years, and in conjunction with the Care Home, Christmas Carols and songs were sung in English and Spanish by the very community spirited Rascals Choir. Many of the residents joined in the singing, clapped and danced. Highlight of the afternoon was a visit from Papa Noel distributing gifts of chocolates to everyone, followed by the trolley laden with beverages (not tea or coffee!!) and cakes. Irene, manager of the visiting team, has spent over 10 years in this role along with many volunteers and she couldn’t imagine doing anything else on a Friday. This is a truly win, win situation where residents and volunteers alike thoroughly enjoy their strolls, coffee and chats as it’s such a worthwhile, rewarding and satisfying afternoon. If you think you could spare one or two Friday afternoons a month taking these residents out for their weekly stroll, please don’t hesitate to contact Age Concern by phoning 966 786 887.
