AN afternoon tea with purple food, quizzes and games was recently held at Bethanie Kingsley to celebrate Purple Week.

The theme for this year’s Purple Week was ‘We take ownership for all our actions and responsibilities’.

The event included seven days of activities to inspire residents, staff and volunteers to reconnect spiritually, encourage greater compassion and respect, and improve wellbeing.

Bethanie sites across Western Australia took part in various purple-themed activities, with Warwick hosting a morning tea with therapy activities and a barbecue, while Yanchep hosted a Purple Service and morning tea.

Bethanie chaplains co-ordinator David Van Leen said Purple Week was about acknowledging Bethanie’s Christian heritage.
