Tonbridge Care Home’s Summer Fete Raises Funds for Residents’ Wishes


Residents and guest#ABA257Woodgate Residential Home in Tudeley Lane, Tonbridge hosted its annual summer fete on Saturday 26th June, raising over £200 for the home’s Wish Appeal.


With all the wet and stormy weather we’ve had lately, staff and residents at Woodgate were lucky enough to wake up to a sunny and dry day on Saturday, the perfect weather for their annual summer fete.


The garden was filled with traditional games, including a coconut shy, beat the goalie and tombola, whilst a bouncy castle was set up to entertain the little ones. Guests were invited to enjoy some fun in the sun, before relaxing with a Pimm’s and lemonade and a barbecue lunch.


Leah Gale, activity coordinator at Woodgate said: “We have an excellent support network of residents’ families and friends in the community here at Woodgate, we’d like to thank them for coming along and supporting us, it was a lovely afternoon and the residents had a great time.”


The Wish Appeal is a fundraising initiative created by Abbeyfield Kent, which relies on donations. The appeal aims to grant wishes for residents living in our homes, whether that is a day at a spa or a trip to their hometown.
