Ascot took place behind closed doors this year but it didn’t stop residents at Madeira Lodge care home embracing the tradition behind closed doors.
Wearing their finest, and sporting a very traditional sun hat residents embraced the event’s Styled With Thanks campaign, an initiative to say thank you and raise money for those effected by the coronavirus, which included the Care Workers’ Charity.
All that was left to do was enjoy lunch, dress up, and for those who love horse racing, watch the jockeys come over the finish line.
Sarah Pennington, Registered Manager at Madeira Lodge care home says: “We all had a wonderful time. We enjoyed the fun of the event, doing it the way we wanted, in the comfort of our own home. It was just the kind of race event we like.”
