Photos of some of things that our residents get up to at Barrowmore
Barrowmore – The Charity Barrowmore held another fantastic open day! – Hundreds of family, friends, local people, corporate partners attended the event and enjoyed Barrowmore House Tours, a museum showcasing the history of Barrowmore (past, present and future), a treasure hunt, a fun dog show, entertainers, an inflatable pub with real cask ales and live bands. The Bluebell café provided lots of catering on the day to include burgers, hot dogs and cream teas!
Patrick Haycock – CEO of Barrowmore said “it was another great open day supported by the people who support the charity! It was an opportunity to showcase how far the charity has come in the past few years. The feedback from people who attended has been overwhelming and the charity, Barrowmore was the winner on the day! We really appreciate all of the support that the community offers to the residents and without them and the support of families, friends, corporate partners and volunteers we would not have been able to move forward in the way that we have and we cannot thank them enough”!
