Corton House takes up 70 for 70 challenge
Norma and Lilian, residents at Corton House care home in Norwich, are challenging themselves to complete 70 jigsaw puzzles this year to celebrate the not-for-profit care home’s 70th anniversary.
They are currently on their 35th puzzle – so halfway there; however, they are seeking donations of puzzles with between 100 and 500 pieces to continue their jigsaw journey. They can be any theme or design as long as there’s no missing pieces (we all know the frustration that can bring!)
Staff and residents at Corton House will be undertaking a whole series of “70 for 70” challenges as part of their very own platinum Jubilee this year, to mark 70 years since the care home – which operates with a Christian ethos and welcomes people of any faith or none – opened its doors in 1952, after being set up by the Norwich Free Church.
2022 will see the home embark on several refurbishments and new additions, with plans for a new café-bistro, a reminiscence room, and a revamped games room where General Manager Tom Greenhill envisages comfortable seating, games tables and a whole wall of puzzles and board games for residents to choose from and play with visiting friends and family.
If you can help by donating a puzzle, please contact Imogen on firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange collection or drop off.
