The Townsville’s Seniors Lifestyle Expo 2019 was a huge success as it saw hundreds of local seniors visiting Murray Stadium for the event.
There were about one hundred stalls ranging from healthcare and service providers, community groups, fitness instructors and recreational and entertainment services on display.
And Arcare North Shore was one of them!
Along with Alwyn, our client services manager, we had set up a colourful high tea platter as a display.
Then, we headed off for a meet and greet to give out our sample bags to the seniors at the event.
To showcase to the public what Arcare North Shore has to offer, we held a competition for anyone to enter and win a complimentary high tea for four people at the residence.
After the expo had finished, the four lucky winners were delighted to hear that they had won and they simply could not wait to for their high tea.
Out of hundreds of entries, these four seniors were very lucky!
Our special guests were treated to tea, coffee and our chef’s culinary delights over an early afternoon high tea.
We also arranged for the piano in the foyer to be play to provide some relaxing music.
One of our winners, Esme had arrived with her lovely daughter who absolutely loved the high tea experience.
She said, “I have never been to a high tea in all my years, and I can tell you, this will not be my last. I simply love it!”.
