Supporting Cardiff Half Marathon



On Sunday 7th October residents and staff of Cartref Lake Road East spent an exciting morning in the garden supporting runners of the Cardiff Half Marathon, including two members of our own staff.🌞🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️ 

Armed with drums, maracas, tambourines, whistles, flags and Prosecco, they were cheering and clapping for every single runner giving them the boost and motivation they needed to get to the finish line.

A huge thank you to everyone who smiled or waved at the residents…or even took a photo with them. The residents appreciated everyone’s effort and your positive reaction to their support. This is what keeps them cheering every year.

We are very proud Wales Online wrote an article about Cartref, saying that passing our care home  is one of the runners' favourite bit of the race. To read the article click the link below:

See you next year! 👏🎈🏆🎉
