New Copford Place care home in Colchester, run by charity Friends of the Elderly, recently welcomed some very special visitors. Thanks to Magical Miniature Ponies, two ponies visited the home to spend time with residents and their relatives.
Donna Owen, Manager at New Copford Place, said: “It was wonderful to see the residents interacting with the ponies. Everyone was just so surprised that we had real life ponies actually inside the home. The team from Magical Miniature Ponies were brilliant telling us all about the ponies and the sensory benefits and stimulation from being around these animals was something we saw last with our residents for days. Everyone is still talking about it!”
