‘The Broads’ pay a visit to LCCC Care Homes

‘The Broads’ pay a visit to LCCC Care Homes

August 25, 2020

We are delighted to share with you that ISLAND Arts Centre has been working in association with the South Eastern & Social Care Trust to bring ‘The Broads’ to Care Homes across the Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council area! The aim of this project is to connect with older people who have been most impacted by living in isolation during lockdown. Yesterday, we visited Pond Park Care Home, Nicholson House and Drumlough House in Lisburn North and South.

A big thank you also to our Mayor Cllr Hon. Nicholas Trimble, who came along to the performances! And a very special mention to a resident from Nicholson House who along with her husband, was able to celebrate their 55th wedding anniversary at the performance - congratulations! Talk about celebrating in style. Stay tuned for more updates this week about the performances!
