A Spring Tea Party at Abingdon, our Southport residential service!
People we support, family members, friends, and our team members gathered at Abingdon, our Lifeways residential service in Southport, to celebrate its Spring Tea Party.
On the day, partygoers enjoyed karaoke, dancing in the garden, and eating lots of home-made food.

Stealing the show was the Bake-Off, which saw people we support compete to create the best cakes.

The winning entry was baked by Adam, who we support, and nominated by a three-member judging panel, made up of two family members and Gareth Roberts, Lifeways’ Quality Director.
With the winning cake selected, all of the cakes were then sold and eaten by partygoers. A total of £125 was raised from the bake sale to go towards future activities for people we support at Abingdon.
“A massive shout out to the entire support team at Abingdon,” says Gareth. “You absolutely nailed it.”
“At Abingdon’s Spring Tea Party, I had the pleasure of witnessing a team that is completely committed to providing outstanding support. The way every member of that team interacts with the people that live there and their families is brilliant.”

“I’ve never been prouder to work for Lifeways. A huge thank you to the team at Abingdon, who go so far to enable people to live their best lives.”
Christopher Regan, Abingdon’s Registered Manager, said: “It was a lovely day and everyone enjoyed it, especially the lovely cakes. Well done team Abingdon! This continues our journey from Good to Outstanding.”More news and events
