Colten Care’s Canford Chase residential and nursing home in Branksome Park, Poole, was turned into the ‘Canford Chase Arms’ for the event. Authentic beer pumps, mats and coasters were set up in the reception area together
with a drinks trolley while residents enjoyed sing-along live entertainment and a raffle. The ‘Parkinson’s Pub Party’ was organised to highlight Parkinson’s Awareness Week which took place from April 16 to 22.
