RAINBOWS decorated a Teesside care home as part of activities to mark LGBT Pride Month.
The “wear it rainbow” day held at The Beeches Care Home, Green Lane, Stockton-on-Tees, saw residents and staff dress in their most brightly coloured clothes.
They also created a multicoloured heart by painting sheets of A4 and assembling them together during an arts and crafts morning.
A rainbow cake and themed cupcakes were baked by the home’s chef, Sophie Henderson, for everyone to enjoy with a cup of tea.
Dozens of rainbow signs were also printed off to decorate the home for the day.
Resident Jean Williams said: “It was lovely to see us showing awareness for LGBT Pride Month, as it’s something close to my heart.”
Jess Brown, home manager at The Beeches Care Home, said: “We decided to hold a “wear it rainbow” day to help celebrate and raise awareness for LGBT Pride Month.
“Everyone has had a lovely day and all the staff really joined in especially wearing their rainbow outfits.”
LGBT Pride Month commemorates the Stonewall riots, regarded as one of the most important events in the fight for LGBT rights, which took place in June 1969.
