Over 40 members, plus staff and volunteers, at The Nicky entered into the true Purim spirit following a reading of the Megillah by Rabbi Pinny Cohen.

Fancy dress was the order of the day, and the members all enjoyed a special lunch, entertainment and afternoon tea – with hamantaschen, of course.

Chief executive, David Delew, said: “We were delighted to welcome so many of our members who joined in the Purim celebrations with such enthusiasm.  Of course, every day is special at The Nicky, where people can meet their friends, take part in a host of activities, or just pass the time of day in warm and friendly surroundings.”
