Residents at a picturesque Kenilworth care home have held a Summer Fete to raise money for a residents’ fund for summers days out and treats.


Family and friends joined with staff and residents for a day of fun and games at Kenilworth Manor.


The event included stalls selling items the talented residents had made, including bird boxes, aprons, cards and paintings.


There was also a tombola and cake stand at the Thickthorn Orchards home, which was decked out in patriotic red, white and blue.


Joy Thorpe, Activities Coordinator at Kenilworth Manor, said: “We had a wonderful day, made all the better by so many of our residents’ families and friends coming to show their support.


“We’ve raised £660 towards trips out, treats and activities that help residents get together and be the close-knit, welcoming and friendly community we have built here at Kenilworth Manor.


“Thanks to the generosity of their loved ones and others, they will be able to enjoy a range of activities over the coming months that will make a huge difference to their enjoyment of life.”


Owned and operated by the Clarendon Care Group, the three-storey Victorian mansion was built in the 1820s and restored in 1987.


Registered with the Care Quality Commission for 34 residents, Kenilworth Manor provides various important facilities for the elderly including convalescent care and access to physiotherapists
