St George’s Day celebrated by Royal Star & Garter’s veterans

Residents at Royal Star & Garter celebrated St George’s Day.

The veterans enjoyed concerts and tea parties to celebrate the patron saint of England on Saturday 23 April.

Royal Star & Garter is a charity which provides loving, compassionate care to veterans and their partners living with disability or dementia, and has Homes in Solihull, Surbiton and High Wycombe.

At the Solihull Home, entertainer Debbie Mills sung for the residents at a St George’s Day concert. Decorations were put up around the Home and residents enjoyed a range of activity workshops, including quizzes.

In High Wycombe, veterans marked the day with a party and tucked into sandwiches and snacks.

In Surbiton, special activities on the day included St George’s Day cupcake-making led by the Home’s chef Rida Diab.

Royal Star & Garter celebrates special days in the calendar such as Burns Night, Valentine’s Day, and other UK patron saints days.

The charity is welcoming new residents. For more information on this, or to work for Royal Star & Garter, please go to
