Staff at a care home in Wellingborough celebrated National Pet Month (April 1 – May 3) with a competition to crown the cutest canine.
Residents at Lancum House had the enviable job of judging the array of canine companions brought in by staff at the home.
Skye Summerton, customer and community coach at the local Morrisons store also helped judge the socially distanced event. She said: “Morrisons is very happy to support events like this, it was so lovely to see the residents having a fun time in the sunshine.”
After much deliberation from the residents, rosettes and treats were awarded to the winners. Third prize was awarded to Labrador, George, with second place going to Trixie the Chihuahua. First place was jointly awarded to Toffee the Cockerpoo and Thumbles – another Chihuahua.
Alysha Coleman, Service Manager at Lancum House – which is run by Shaw healthcare – said: “It was great to be able to welcome people back to the home, even if it was the garden. Everyone loved it and we are looking forward to organising more events in the summer months.
“I would like to thank Skye from Morrisons for her ongoing support with Lancum House. She really makes Lancum House feel very much part of the community.”
Lancum House is a residential care home providing care for up to 43 people including those living with dementia.
