The Bollywood-themed bash brought residents, their staff and families together to mark a hugely successful first decade for the senior living community. Although the weather was more Banstead than Bangalore, the rain didn’t dampen any spirits as everyone got in the party mood.
Staff welcomed guests in full Bollywood dress with a platter of Indian snacks prepared by Sunrise’s team of chefs. As the celebrations got into full swing, Lionel Blair arrived onstage to perform. Lionel then joined General Manager Suzanne Spurgin in toasting to further success and cutting the specially made birthday cake.
The party then continued into the afternoon, with the family of one Sunrise resident giving a speech to say how thankful they were for the help and support of the staff.
Suzanne Spurgin, General Manager at Sunrise of Banstead, said:
“It was a wonderful afternoon and a fantastic way to celebrate Sunrise of Banstead’s 10th birthday. Having Lionel here was a real treat for everyone as many of our residents are big fans of his.
“The highlight for me was hearing the family of one resident speak to guests so warmly about the care their relative receives here. Stories like this are what makes working at Sunrise so enjoyable.”
