Canterbury care home raises cash for residents at Summer Fete


Residents Barbara Ma#C02F23Connors House Residential Home in Canterbury hosted its annual summer fete on Friday 26th August, raising £190 for the residents of the home.


With the glorious weather showing no signs of disappearing, it was the perfect day for the Craddock Road residential home to invite residents’ guests along and host their annual garden fete.


There were plenty of stalls for guests to browse including bric-a-brac, books, sweets, crafts and delicious homemade cakes, which went down particularly well with the guests!


As well as the stalls, there were lots of fun and games for the guests, both old and young, including a tombola, hook a duck and hoopla. Staff also made sure their guests didn’t go hungry, as they had fired up their new built in barbecue for the special event.


Christine Devlin, home manager of Connors House said: “Everyone had a great time at the summer fete and it was a great success, we couldn’t have done it without the support of our residents, their relatives and our staff and their families.


“Our volunteers helped out with everything from managing stalls and organising games to baking cakes to ensure the event went well, which all contributed to us raising an excellent £190, which will go towards the residents’ amenities fund.”
