GOOD NEWS: Sunrise of Chorleywood wins prestigious NAPA Award for their commitment to the arts 

 Published on: 9th October 2020   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Sunrise of Chorleywood has won the National Activity Provider Association (NAPA) Award for ‘Arts in a Care Home’. 

This award recognises a care setting that has demonstrated a commitment and passion for embedding arts-based activities.

The dedicated activities team at Sunrise of Chorleywood is led by activity and volunteer coordinator, Patrick Maher.

He said: “We are delighted to have won this prestigious award; it is wonderful to have our Activities Team recognised like this. Throughout my time as Activity and Volunteer Coordinator, I have seen so much growth in residents from engaging with all the creative arts we have on offer at Sunrise of Chorleywood. 

 “Two residents, Gill and Yvonne, had to overcome the effects of a stroke to be involved in ‘Hearts of the Ocean’. They led on the making of the sea turtles, using only one hand and with limited mobility. 

“This was incredible to watch. We will continue to enhance the creativity of all our residents through many more collaborative art projects and activities.”

Each year, registered charity NAPA celebrates individuals who are innovative and creative in the way they meet the needs of people they support.
