Maycroft Manor residents, relatives and team release their inner Queen at Brighton Pride
Residents, relatives and team members at Maycroft Manor, our care home in Brighton, released their inner queen recently by taking part in Brighton Pride.
30 representatives from our industry-leading home on Carden Avenue took part in the Pride Parade for the first time on Saturday, dressing up in rainbow colours and holding flags for the occasion.
Residents also decorated their walkers and wheelchairs and handmade rosettes for the special event.
Meanwhile, resident Gill Woods was hailed the ‘Queen of all Queens’ dancing for most of the parade which went past Brighton’s landmarks with the crowds cheering her on.
Gill said: “I had to keep pinching myself, I thought I was dreaming. I felt just like the Queen.”
General Manager of Maycroft Manor Care Home, Richard Lawson added: “It was the most amazing day and went so much better than I ever thought it would be. Maycroft Manor will be remembered for many a long time after that and the team were outstanding! It was a wonderful experience and we are now planning for bigger and better parade next year!”
