Carrickfergus Manor Fashion Show

On Saturday 3rd February 2018 we hosted our very first fashion show!  Staff and family brought in their formal dresses and suits for our residents to wear.  The event started at 3pm with make-overs where staff volunteered their time to come in and do hair and make up for the majority of our 18 models.  Once residents were having dinner, we were hard at work setting up the room with helium balloons, red carpet, disco lights and PA system.  Once the residents finished their evening meal staff were then on hand to help get dresses and accessories on our ladies and help the gentlemen into their suits.  At 6.30pm our Activities Co-ordinators, Theresa and Tracey, began to compare the event with staff, family and friends on hand to escort our lovely models down the red carpet.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the planning, preparation and, of course, the main event with some huge smiles and dance moves surprising us from some of our quieter residents.  The evening concluded with refreshments for all.
