Two of Monkbarns Dementia Ambassadors, Shirley and Kirsty, took part in the Dementia and Nutrition competition, and did a nutrition based activity. They chose to have a Mexican themed day on the 1st of November in the café at Monkbarns to get as many people involved as possible, with fajitas, nachos, chilli and a variety of cocktails and colourful decorations, which won first place!

The prize included a cook book and a lovely basket filled with baking goodies, such as; cookie cutters, icing tools and even edible glitter! Shirley and Kirsty took the basket and book round a few of the residents, Giesla, Bella and iris, who were thrilled to be a part of the winning team who thoroughly enjoyed rummaging through the book and the baskets contents, they can’t wait to get cooking!
