Nathalie McLeish, director of community relations at Sunrise of Sonning, said: “We were thrilled to celebrate our 10th birthday with such a wonderful afternoon. I hope we provided a fitting tribute to everything we have achieved over the past 10 years and we look forward to celebrating many more birthdays to come.”
