Local disability sport development company SMILE Through Sport recently visited the home to engage residents in gentle, yet competitive sporting games.

Residents grouped into teams, aiming balls at targets to win points for their teams.

They also played the traditional pass the ball game, which is very popular at Scarbrough Court.

Activities co-ordinator Dawn Peters said: “Whilst the cold weather is lasting, residents are still being active and enjoy taking part in sportive events and activities.

“As well as offering residents a range of different activities throughout the week, teaming up with local companies brings local people and the home together.”
