Aberavon care home bags visit by internationally famous artist for Care Home Open Day

Care Home Open Day 2015 was taken up enthusiastically by CFW members across Wales – among them Swn y Mor in Aberavon, RMBI Albert Edward in Porthcawl and Queen Elizabeth Court in Llandudno (see pictures below).

Swn y Mor opened its doors to celebrate the 2015 Care Home Open Day art theme by asking people from the local community to submit works of art and Queen Elizabeth Court booked entertainer Tudur Wynn "who interacted with our residents and sang songs from all genres" according to activities co-ordinator Gary Carr.

Sharon Williams, of Swn y Mor, said: "We were lucky enough to be supported by our local comprehensive and primary schools, the local Stroke club as well as staff, relatives and ladies and gentlemen of Swn y Mor.

"Internationally famous painter Andrew Vicari (pictured below, left) came along with the Mayor and a representative of newly-elected local MP Stephen Kinnock to assist with the judging.

"We were especially touched as the learning disability class of Sandfields Comprehensive made a collage of the local area including our home which they have now donated to us for our wall.

"It was a marvellous day and it celebrates the fact that it doesn’t matter what age or disability we all have an interest in common that we can share," Sharon added.
