Football fever!

At Holywell House, we’re super excited for tonight’s Euro 2020 final! We have decorated the home with lots of football themed paraphernalia and we are counting down the hours now!

To reach the final of such a prestigious European football tournament is unbelievable and our residents are loving every minute. Some have painted their nails in England colours while others have created some homemade flags and we’ve popped them up on the windows, along our walls and even personalised walking aids with them. Some of our residents are avid football fans!

Ashley White, our deputy manager at Holywell House, said: “We’re gunning for the boys to bring home the silver tonight! Our residents have really got into watching the tournament this summer and it’s been brilliant to see the excitement and smiles across their faces.

“They have had great fun doing lots of England football themed activities including biscuit baking, painting our windows in the England team’s national colours and playing with giant football shaped balloons!

“It’s been an incredibly tough year so it really is lovely to get so excited about such an important national occasion. It’s brought a lot of happiness to our residents, as you can see from the photos, and our home is full of laughter, excitement (as well as a few nerves!). Bring on tonight!”
