Bellarine Community Health’s Social Support team couldn’t let Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations pass without a party.
The BCH team and the volunteers who support the program put together some very special luncheons for clients across the week.
A special menu was created featuring ‘Coronation Chicken’ sandwiches and a ‘Platinum Pudding’ (trifle) which was apparently the winning dessert in a Jubilee competition held in the UK.
Special Jubilee inspired games were created and the team also came up with some very intricate craft work including a life size Union Jack flag created using tea bag tags.
The BCH Social Support program provides social connection and recreational activities to help keep elderly community members physically and mentally active.
The program can also provide respite for participants and their carers, and is open to a wide range of people who are seeking to maintain their independence and connection to the community.
