It was Joan’s big 99th birthday, which she celebrated with music and games such as Pass The Parcel,
and Don’t Drop The Balloon! Friends and family and staff also joined in on the celebrations;
we all gathered to sing her a big happy birthday in the Piano Bar where she was presented with her
beautiful cake made by Marie, our amazing chef. Our Activities team also organised a Durham themed
quiz (where Joan grew up) as a special twist on the usual activities.
