OAP Christmas Event

Community Christmas Event success!

On Wednesday 13th December, residents of Mersey Parks Care Home in Toxteth flocked to the Life Sciences UTC & Studio School for the first ever Christmas Community event. The day provided visitors and their carers a day of respite from their usual routine, welcoming them into the heart of the Baltic Community.

Across the afternoon the refectory was transformed into a festive cavern. Senior visitors settled in and were treated to a three course Christmas meal, live entertainment courtesy Life Sciences UTC staff and students and finally, an afternoon of Bingo with some sought-after prizes up for grabs!

Staff & students alike fully embraced the festivities and as the afternoon culminated, it was clear to see that this humbling event was a great success, bringing varying generations of the community together. Comments and highlights from guests included:

  • ‘The students are so well mannered!’
  • ‘Such a lovely start to Christmas!’
  • ‘What a lovely bunch of staff and students. Such an impressive building!’
  • ‘When can we do it all over again?!’

We’d like to offer a huge thank you to all staff and students involved for the success of this year’s event. Here’s to next year!
