The Huntercombe Group’s Maidenhead Hospital held its yearly summer fete last week, providing a fun filled afternoon for the whole hospital community whilst raising money for the local Alexander Devine Hospice.
Current and former patients, their families, and staff members had the opportunity to get involved in a wide range of activities, such as face painting, arts and crafts stalls, a tombola, and a pamper tent. A key attraction was the bucking bronco that provided great entertainment, as did the traditional water fight that took place the end of the day.
Entertainment was provided throughout the afternoon by some of the patients who sang a mix of top 40 current hits and classic sing-alongs. There was also a delicious BBQ, as well as ice creams for dessert.
Iris Cupido, Hospital Manager, said: “Everyone really looks forward to the annual fete here at Huntercombe Maidenhead Hospital. It is a great way for our entire hospital community to come together, and staff and residents alike really enjoyed all of the fun activities on offer. It’s also particularly rewarding to be able to give all the money raised from the fete to the Alexander Devine Hospice.”
