Fashion Morning at the Old Vicarage

Published on 05 April 2019 09:16 AM

Residents enjoyed refreshments and music from the war time and the 1950s era while our volunteers, Pat and Maryam, modelled clothing from ‘posh frocks’ to ‘pinnies’. The residents had the opportunity to try hats on and pose for photos with the staff and volunteers. Mannequins have been left on display in the home for other residents and visitors to enjoy.

Dresses, hats and accessories were supplied by our Volunteers in Care Homes Coordinator, Jo, as part of the Volunteers in Care Homes project.


The collection of dresses are available for similar events in other care homes through the project. For more information on the Volunteers in Care Homes project please contact us on 01204 701525 or email
