Clients at Arcare Eight Mile Plains celebrated Mother’s Day with a handmade photo frame and an impromptu photo session around the residence.
During one of their craft sessions, the clients had made a beautiful frame full of pink and white flowers and hearts.
And on Friday, as the frame was taken around to the different ladies, they all had a big smile on their face as they happily posed for a photo.
Team members Wendy, Jean and Sharyn also stopped to take a photo or two with the frame.
After the photoshoot, team members organised a special Mother’s Day BBQ for those who wanted to enjoy the outdoors.
During the lunch, clients chatted and bonded over their countless stories of motherhood, from tips on how to raise children to their favourite hobbies and interests.
Bobby also won the Mother’s Day raffle that consisted of a gift basket filled with chocolates, stationery and other items.
Barbara, who is very good friends with Bobby, was very happy for her friend to win the raffle.
It was a wonderful day celebrating our mothers at the Eight Mile Plains residence!
