Football fever has arrived at one care home in Horwich as they show their support for England in Euro 2024.

Residents and team members at St Catherine's Care Home have been enjoying the build up to the first England game against Serbia.

The care home has a dedicated "fanzone" decorated with bunting, flags and scarves to get everyone in the mood for cheering on Gareth Southgate’s team and a pop-up pub will serve drinks and snacks.

Residents will be enjoying table football, games of "Slipper Soccer", competing with team members in penalty shoot-outs and playing score prediction games as they follow all the action throughout the tournament.

Resident Mona Crompton said: “I loved decorating our lounge for the Euros and I can’t wait to watch the England game with all my friends.”

The care home’s magic moments coordinator, Cara Daley, said: “Football fever has well and truly arrived here at St Catherine's. Everyone is talking about whether their team can go all the way and it’s been lovely listening to our residents’ memories of games they’ve watched over the years. 

“We’re looking forward to all being together to support our team and will no doubt enjoy some banter over VAR decisions!”
