Herts Musical Memories, celebrated Christmas early this year, with the support of Compass Group UK & Ireland’s Steamplicity team - serving Christmas lunch at The Stanborough Centre, Watford.
Herts Musical Memories operates across Hertfordshire, delivering singing sessions for people living with dementia and their carers, aiming to create meetings that are fun and engaging. The group hope attendees that come along regularly will benefit from improved sociability, increased self-confidence and decreased anxiety, as well as creating a connection between familiar songs to stimulate their memories.
The event took place on Friday 9th December, with 30 people being served a traditional Christmas dinner of roast turkey, served with trimmings including sage and onion stuffing, pork sausage, roast potatoes, root vegetable mash, Brussels sprouts and gravy. Each guest was also treated to a box of chocolates from the team.
The group came together to sing and celebrate this festive season, being served Steamplicity meals which use an innovative cooking system, to cook fresh and raw ingredients in minutes.
Kerry Brabant, from Herts Musical Memories, commented: “We were so delighted Steamplicity and their fabulous team chose Herts Musical Memories to support, bringing their lovely meals to make our Christmas event so special. It was a fantastic day of singing, fun and food.”
John Harvey, National Accounts Manager, Steamplicity commented: “This was a wonderful event and we were proud to support the work of this very special group, who work tirelessly all year round to bring joy and memories through singing. Our donation of meals seemed to be enjoyed by all and we loved joining in the singing! We wish everyone a great Christmas.”
