Excited residents at Eckington Court Nursing Home, near Sheffield, have turned their lounge into ‘football central’ as they gear up for the crucial Euro 2024 semi-final encounter against the Netherlands this evening (10 July).

The match will be accompanied by snacks, soft drinks, and plenty of cheering as residents get to relive memories of past tournaments and share their predictions for the outcome.

Eckington Court is dedicated to ensuring residents remain engaged and connected with current events, and this football fever has certainly brought a wave of excitement and camaraderie.
