Rose Court, Surrey Quays


Helen who works for the NHS decided to join Cocktails when it was featured in the Evening Standard in 2013.

Helen says “It’s a really easy way to volunteer, one hour a month is not a lot of time to commit but you get a real sense of doing something useful. Having a drink and a chat is very much part of life, and I can’t see a good reason why that should change just because you are living in a care home.”

Rose Court in Surrey Quays, just round the corner from Rotherhithe station, is large friendly home and long-term hosts of Cocktails in Care Homes. Rose Court also took part in Magic Me’s Artists Residencies in Care Homes project hosting performance artist and activist Lois Weaver aka Tammy Whynot.
