Summer Fete raises £600 for Kemsing care home residents


Managing stalls at the feteThe Dynes Care Home in Kemsing hosted their annual summer fete on Sunday 24th July, raising over £600 for the residents of the home.


On Sunday 24th July, the Nightingale Road care home opened its doors to the public and invited them in to enjoy some fun in the sun with the residents and staff of the home.


There was plenty of fun to be had for all the family, including a tombola, hook a duck, beat the goalie and even the chance to meet some friendly ponies. As well as the variety of fun and games, guests could purchase a variety of delicious cakes and potted plants, browse the bric-a-brac stalls and view the retro car, which was on display in the garden.


Joined by their relatives and friends from the village, the residents of the home had a great afternoon browsing the attractions and assisting staff on the stalls and games.


Nicky Pett, home manager of The Dynes said: “The fete was a great success, the residents and everyone who came along had a lovely afternoon. We’d like to say a big thank you to anyone who donated something, managed a stall or came along to support us on the day.”


In total, the fete raised an impressive £614, which will go toward the residents amenities fund, enabling them to enjoy more exciting days out over the summer months.
