Residents of Lily House in Ely enjoyed a Big Lunch with Fen House, a neighbouring brain injury unit.
The event was organised by rehabilitation co-ordinator Lisa Thompson and among those in attendance were mayoress of Ely Cassie Rouse and the Tesco Ely community support officer.
It was the first time the two neighbouring homes had got together for a lunch, and everyone enjoyed karaoke and a sing-along.
There was also lots of food made by chefs at both homes.
There are already plans to hold a similar event in the future.
It was also Miss Rouse’s first solo event as mayoress.
The Big Lunch was started in 2009 by a group of people at the Eden Project. It is now sponsored by the National Lottery.
Fen House is a specialist rehabilitation centre that provides residential rehabilitation for people with acquired brain injury.
Opened in 2005, it is part of the nationwide network of rehabilitation support services provided by The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT).
