Welcome to the races – Royal Ascot 2020

We didn’t want to miss the Ascot races this year and we were fortunate to have many horses available to race at our Home in Manchester.  ‘The Queen’ was delighted to accept the invitation to join us for this wonderful exciting event. 

The races were a great success and the winners were thrilled with their prizes.   The drinks and refreshments were enjoyed by all the people who were present at the event. The donated homemade cakes were enjoyed by all present.

A special price was awarded to Margaret Mullin for the Best Hat.  It was difficult to choose a winner because everyone wore a designer hat.  Margaret received a large box of chocolate which she shared with her friends. 

At the end of the races, a song `We’ll meet again”  by  Vera Lynn was played  and residents, sisters and staff joined in the sing along.
