Bluebird Care hosted a free special event open to existing customers and the general public, to celebrate the many charities and groups who work so hard for older members of our society.

The goal was simple - to have a positive impact on the local community by helping improve lives for older people throughout the Borough of Rushcliffe (Radcliffe on Trent and the neighbouring villages).

During the course of the event, which ran from 10am-1pm on Wednesday 10th April at Grange Hall (Radcliffe on Trent), guests had the opportunity to walk around 22 different exhibits and engage with a diverse range of services and charities, including:

  • Bluebird Care 
  • Parkinson's UK
  • JoCo Learning and Development
  • Wiltshire Farm Foods
  • Tunstall Healthcare 
  • Radcliffe Library
  • Everyone Health 
  • Radford Care Group
  • Nottinghamshire Hospice
  • Diabetes UK
  • Versus Arthritis 
  • Metropolitan Connect
  • Osteopoise        
  • Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue
  • Rushcliffe All Ears Group              
  • Rushcliffe CVS
  • Rothera Sharp Solicitors               
  • Gibson Sharpe Footcare
  • West Bridgford Mobility               
  • Rushcliffe 50+ Forum
  • Let’s Live Well in Rushcliffe         
  • Nottinghamshire Police

In addition to the many exhibits on show, guests enjoyed complimentary refreshments whilst being entertained by a wonderful live performance from the Radcliffe-on-Trent Male Voice Choir. Those also looking to work off that second slice of cake could take part in a chair- based exercise class run by Everyone Health.

All in all it was a fantastic morning, providing Bluebird Care with an opportunity to say thank you to some familiar faces, and also to meet and greet some new ones. We aim to host more of these informative, friendly social gatherings in the future, which can help combat the loneliness and isolation often experienced by older people in our society. These types of events also provide a much-needed platform to raise public awareness of all the incredible health and social care organisations out there available to help improve people's independence, wellbeing, and overall quality of life.
