Too good to eat? That's our Gingerbread House entries.
As part of the festive celebrations this Christmas, we ran a special Christmas competition for National Gingerbread House Day where entries created an Abbeyfield home in gingerbread. After an overwhelming number of incredibly impressive houses, we have our winner.
Congratulations to our winner Abbeyfield House in Keynsham, part of the Abbeyfield Bristol & Keynsham Society, who blew away the judging panel with their incredible creation and truly encapsulated the spirit of Abbeyfield.
The quality and scope of all the different designs was outstanding, from staff to residents living with dementia and supporters to children in the local community. We will be featuring all entries in a special Facebook album.
Special mentions also go the highly commended entries from the East London Abbeyfield houses and homes, the Abbeyfield London Polish Society, the Abbeyfield Wessex Society, Westall House and Digital Marketing Officer Suzanne Brammer, for their great efforts.
The initiative was designed to showcase the warmth, companionship and togetherness embodied by Abbeyfield’s houses and homes, which were the values upon which the organization was founded 65 years ago. It is clear that the residents and staff view Abbeyfield as a special place to be, both at Christmas and all year round.
Take a look at all 50+ entries in our dedicated Facebook album.
