Whinnieknowe's Victorian Saturday...

Galcantary Country Clydesdales

How would you celebrate a 70 year anniversary?

Our Whinnieknowe Care Home, with the support of the local community, pulled out all the stops to host an incredible Victorian fun day to celebrate theirs and the 150th anniversary of CrossReach.

The whole community got involved donating time, talents, food and memorabilia to make the day a feast for all the senses. There was cake, Clydesdales, penny farthings, face painting and live music  - something for everyone to enjoy!
