About

We run cocktail parties every week on a Wednesday or Thursday evening from 6pm for residents of 9 care homes with any relatives or friends who wish to join in as well as care staff. Volunteers living or working locally host the party joining residents to socialise over a drink.

Cocktails in Care Homes offers older people an occasion to look forward to and a chance to meet new people in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. Volunteers help Magic Me staff host monthly parties at 9 care homes across London. Parties take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 6:00 - 7:30pm. "I thought: 'This sounds like such a lovely idea! Usually I go from work to home, do some household chores, have dinner, sleep and then it’s work again. This felt like an ideal way of breaking up my day. I work in Canary Wharf so stop off at a care home for a drink on my way home!’" Volunteer Host If you’d like to get to know your neighbours, enjoy meeting people from all walks of life and fancy a nightcap on your way home from work why not join Cocktails in Care Homes? This is a great opportunity to volunteer on a project that is changing lives whilst having a great time! We provide specialist training for our volunteers 4 times a year.
