The scheme in Kettering invited a piper to come along and join
in the fun, and staff and residents enjoyed eating Scottish
shortbread and raspberries. In addition, Team Leader Karen offered
to stay on after her shift to cook a proper Scottish meal of Scotch
pies and mash, followed by a chocolate dessert.
Volunteer Michael found pictures of the areas where Sunley's
Scottish residents were born - Isle of Harris, Motherwell, the Isle
of Barra and Kilcardy - and put them on a DVD which he played for
Residents also spent some time learning about St Andrew and
being tested on their Scottish knowledge with a quiz.
Activity Co-ordinator Gill Crosswell read some Scottish poetry
to the group, and the evening's entertainment finished with a game
of anagrams involving places in Scotland.
Gill, who organised the event, said residents and staff all
enjoyed themselves. "We even finished with a wee dram of Scotch
Whiskey!" she added.
