Renaissance Care Home Residents Bask in Their April Fools’ Glory

Must read

Elderly residents at Renaissance Care have been enjoying their April Fools’ Day as they pranked the nation with their ‘Scotland’s Strongest Pensioner Championships’.

Jean (91) and Robert (81) limber up for the strength-based competition.

The care home residents had a blast taking photos during fake training exercises inspired by the World’s Strongest Man competition, as they were pictured working towards personal goals and bests in the famous Vehicle Pull, the Hercules Hold and a variety of deadlifting challenges.

The residents have been taking part in Summer and Winter Olympics initiatives across the group, which improved the health and wellbeing of residents and saw them get competitive across the sports.

Robert Roy, aged 81, shows off his strength while lifting the car of a staff member at Whitecraigs Care Home.

For April Fools’ Day, they felt the perfect joke would be to take that one step further to find Scotland’s Strongest Pensioner.

Care home resident Robert (81) took part in the joke and was photographed at Renaissance Care’s Whitecraigs Care Home.

He said:

“We had a great laugh lifting the fake weights and pretending to pull the mini-van along.

“We have all been really competitive and have been joking about who has been the best at the Olympic games and who is the strongest so wanted to have a little fun for April Fools’ Day.”
