MHA Amathea celebrates 80th birthday of MHA with one-week musical extravaganza

31 October 2023

MHA Amathea celebrated the 80th birthday of MHA with a week full of dance music and fun.

The Workington home arranged a music festival with various tribute acts from yesteryear to keep residents, staff and family members entertained.

The home provides residential and dementia care for 40 residents and set up the festival in celebration of MHA’s 80 birthday.

Yvonne Burrows, activity coordinator said: “The music festival was a week packed full of so much fun and entertainment.

“I really enjoyed planning and organising the entertainment and it was good to see everyone having a lovely time. 

“We had some great discussions with residents, discussing the history of MHA and how proud we all are to be associated with an organisation that has been around for that long.

“The discussions were really interesting and helped us all understand more about the organisation.

“Apart from the residents, it gave staff members the chance to enjoy themselves and the feedback we received from them was really positive.

“We had plenty of family members of residents coming in through the week as part of their visits and they got involved which was lovely to see.

“I want to thank everyone who worked really hard to contribute towards the festival, especially the singers and it really was a great week.”
