Scarlet House to host quacking duck trail this weekend

On Saturday and Sunday, from 11.30am, Scarlet House, on Westward Road, is inviting members of the community to come along to its socially-distanced duck trail in aid of The Pied Piper Appeal.

The trail will go from the home’s car park to its gardens and will feature handmade duck cut-outs decorated by residents and pupils at Co-op Childcare Cainscross, with various clues to be collected along the way. Younger intrepid explorers will also receive art packs and duck-themed prizes for completing the trail. 

To book their place, families must pay a £2 entry fee via the home’s Just Giving profile – all the proceeds will then go towards the Pied Piper Appeal, a charity which supports ill and disabled children in Gloucestershire. 

There will be marshalls in place to ensure social distancing and facilitate safe flow, while adults are encouraged to wear face coverings.  

Dot Pye, home manager at Scarlet House, said: “We’re incredibly excited to host of very first duck trail here at Scarlet House.

“Residents and children at Co-op Childcare Cainscross have been busy decorating the ducks, and we can’t wait to showcase the result of their hard work to the rest of the community.

“With restrictions starting to ease up, we felt like the bank holiday weekend would be the perfect opportunity for families to come together and enjoy a fun-filled afternoon looking for clues in our beautiful garden – all for a good cause.”

Scarlet House provides full-time residential, nursing, dementia care, as well as short-term respite care.
