Going for gold! Cheltenham care home hosts sports day for local community


Dates: Wednesday 24th and Thursday 25th July 2024

With the Olympics fast approaching, a local care home is limbering up for its very own sporting tournament.

On Wednesday 24th and Thursday 25th July, from 2.30pm-4.30pm, Care UK’s Sandfields, on St George’s Road, will be bringing Paris to Cheltenham as it opens its doors for local people to enjoy their own version of the Games.


The two-day event comes as Sandfields joins The Big Care UK Sports Day, which sees over 130 Care UK homes across the UK host sports days for the local community and showcase what life in a care home is really like.

Guests can soak up the sporting atmosphere and, for those daring to compete, have the chance to win their own gold medals with an afternoon of fun and games, including skittles, frisbee, boules, shooting hoops and paper planes.

Visitors can also enjoy traditional French food cooked by the home’s talented head chef, which they can enjoy while listening to live French music.

Malaika Charles, Home Manager at Sandfields, said: “We’re delighted to be welcoming the local community to join our own sporting celebrations.

“We are part of a strong community here in Cheltenham, and days like this are a fantastic way of bringing us all together for a little healthy competition and to celebrate this year’s summer of sport, all while showcasing exactly what life is like here at Sandfields.

“The day not only promises a lot of laughter and enjoyment for all involved, but also is an excellent way for residents to meet and mingle with lots of new faces – and some familiar ones – while keeping active. We can’t wait until kick-off!”
