A Forest Gate care home has marked its 15th anniversary with a party.

Family and friends joined the 13 residents and their carers at Sahara Lodge, in Earlham Grove, for a celebratory afternoon.

Those living in partner care homes in Ilford and Barking were also invited.

Around 50 people enjoyed activities including karaoke before founder Sharon Kaur cut a celebratory cake.

Patricia Allen, team leader at Sahara Care, said: “Staff worked really hard to make it a great day.”

Sahara Lodge is a residential care home for adults with learning difficulties.
