Superheroes and Disney characters visit Chesterfield care homes on World Book Day 

CAPTAIN America, Banana Man and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’s Veronica Salt were among those to visit Chesterfield care homes on World Book Day.

Staff and their children dressed as their favourite characters as part of celebrations at Barnfield and Holmewood care homes.

Among them were four-year-old Olivia Furniss and her eight-year-old brother Riley, who dressed as the Roald Dahl character and Marvel comic book superhero.

The pair are the children of Barnfield Care Home activities coordinator Rachel Furniss and the grandchildren of home manager Alison Riley.

Alison said: “We celebrate World Book Day every year and my grandchildren often visit to read their favourite stories to our residents.

“Everyone loves their visits as they bring so much energy and fun into the home and the residents thoroughly enjoy reading books with them.”

Superheroes and Disney characters visit Chesterfield care homes on World Book Day 

Banana Man care assistant Chantelle Parker, resident Gerald Yem and Snow White care assistant Marilou Lamprou celebrate World Book Day at Holmewood Care Home.

At Holmewood Care Home, care assistants Chantelle Parker and Marilou Lamprou’s costumes shared a fruity connection.

Chantelle appeared as the parody superhero Banana Man and Marilou avoided the poisoned apple to show-up as Disney’s Snow White.

Kathleen Richardson, Holmewood Care Home manager, said: “The staff decided to dress up for World Book Day to entertain the residents, alongside the children who dropped into the home as well.

“It was a brilliant event to celebrate alongside our partner home and everyone had a great time reading their favourite books.”
