Real Living Group has been supporting Daffodil Day for years, with some of our villages organizing their own fundraising events. The fight against cancer is a very important cause for most of our residents, so it’s no surprise that Epsom Village’s Daffodil Happy Hour was one of the most popular events of the year.
The Village’s lounge was decorated with paper daffodils that the residents themselves made during the last few weeks. Some daffodils had also been donated by Kohia Terrace School, that has a close connection with the Village. The residents who showed more creativity with their outfits received special prizes, with the ladies who created a daffodil costume being praised by all their neighbours.
Epsom Village organized a Raffle for Daffodil Happy Hour with items donated by the residents. Local shops were also asked to participate, with an overwhelming positive response. Hell Pizza Epsom, the residents’ favourite takeaway, gifted all the pizzas for the night. The Florentine Tea Room donated more than 60 freshly baked cookies. The Raffle also included vouchers from our providers and trusted local businesses like Pop in Care, an in-home care service enhancing the wellbeing of the elderly & their families.
One of the highlights of the night was the Yellow Cocktail competition, with the Mighty Margarita and the 80s classic Fluffy Duck competing for the top spot. It was a close match, but the residents crowned the Fluffy Duck as the night’s winner.
Real Living residents showed once again their kindness and generosity in support of such a worthy cause. Epsom Village raised a total of $650 that will go towards supporting people affected by cancer and their families.
