Residents from Cavell House have been spent a colourful day enjoying the sights and sounds of Worthing Pride.
Four residents made the trip in the home’s minibus, accompanied by staff, to the event celebrating the LGBTQ+ community. They enjoyed the spectacle of the festivities.
Nikki Stevenson, registered manager at Cavell House said: “You might not think a pride event is the obvious place to take a group of our residents but at Cavell House we promote inclusivity and encourage all our residents to be who they are.
“Everybody had a fantastic time – the sun was shining and the music got us all boogying.”
Victor, age 84, said: “We had a lovely day. It was the first one I’ve been to but I loved it! The colours were amazing and the music had us all tapping our toes. We met some interesting folks, some of them were wearing fabulous outfits.”
