Sunrise Weybridge celebrates fifth birthday with 007 event
A care home in Weybridge celebrated its fifth birthday in style, by hosting a Casino Royale-inspired party.
Sunrise Senior Living welcomed friends, family and neighbours for an afternoon of live music, flowing champagne and a finger buffet.
Councillor Janet Turner, mayor of Elmbridge, attended the party and gave a speech on how she had seen Sunrise flourish.
Partygoers all dressed up for the occasion, with the men donning dicky bows and ladies in stunning gowns.
One of Sunrise of Weybridge’s founding residents, John Solbett, gave a speech describing life in Sunrise and gave thanks and praise to the staff who made it feel like home.
Also on the cards was an open charity casino table and top prizes were up for grabs during blackjack and roulette.
Sunrise also raised £525 for its chosen charity, the Alzheimer’s Society.
Marcus Le Brocq, director of community relations at Sunrise of Weybridge, said: “Our fifth anniversary celebration here at Sunrise was a wonderful success, enjoyed by our residents as well as our guests.
“This is the kind of event that typifies what Sunrise is about – generating a real community spirit based around the people who live here.”
