Kind-hearted staff and residents at a Worcester care home have raised vital funds to help the families of children suffering from cancer.
Northwick Grange Care Home held a Summer Fete for the residents’ activity fund but also shared proceeds with Lennox Children’s Cancer Charity.
The day featured cake stalls, tombola and traditional fairground games including hook a duck. Visitors also got to get up close with vintage vehicles including an mg midget and a bsa motorbike while residents made decorations.
The event at the home in Old Northwick Lane welcomed its 25 residents, their families and friends and raised £120.
Debbie Cross, Activities Co-ordinator at Northwick Grange, said: “It was a fantastic day and I want to thank everyone who came along and made it such a success.
“The residents’ activity fund is a vital part of life at Northwick Grange and contributes towards days out as well as special visitors and events here at the home. It is all about offering the best quality of life alongside outstanding care.
However, Lennox Children’s Cancer Charity is a cause close to the hearts of several of our staff and residents generously agreed to let us split the proceeds of the fete with them.”
Lennox Children’s Cancer Charity provides practical, financial and emotional support to families with children living with cancer or leukaemia. It provides care grants, hospital assistance and respite breaks.
Northwick Grange Care Home is part of the privately-owned Clarendon Care Group based in Worcestershire.
