Primrose patients, staff and volunteers have trip to the seaside - at the hospice

PATIENTS at Bromsgrove’s Primrose Hospice were taken back to the summers of their childhoods when staff and volunteers simulated two days at the seaside.

The hospice on St Godwalds Road was decked out with beach balls, buckets and spades and a makeshift beach using sand and a paddling pool.

Staff and volunteers wore hula skirts and lei flower garlands over their usual work uniform and had their faces painted.

Two donkeys and two Shetland ponies visited, along with an ice cream van which proved very popular.

The staff, patients and volunteers also played games, including archery, bats and balls and a chocolate claw machine.

And patients also enjoyed an old fashioned fish and chips with mushy peas for lunch.

Katy Power, the hospice’s head of clinical services, said the day was created because many patients could no longer get to the beach.

“They have absolutely loved the beach days and have had really good fun.

“Every day here at the hospice is good fun.

“It’s not how you imagine it, Primrose Hospice is about having fun, living well and making memories.”
