Retired nurses enjoy all the fun at the summer fair!


The Retired Nurses National Home in Bournemouth, run by charity Friends of the Elderly, enjoyed its summer fete on 21 July. The day was a great success with the beautiful weather, lots of visitors and of course the residents, who had a wonderful day. The event raised £1,630 towards creating a sheltered area in the garden at the care home.


Alan Johnston, Manager at the Retired Nurses National Home, said: “What a fantastic day. Thank you to all those who joined us and made the day such a success. Our residents were really thrilled to see so many people in the home and enjoying the wonderful weather, stalls, refreshments and entertainment. Plus we have raised a brilliant amount of money towards our sheltered garden area, which we hope residents will get much enjoyment from.”


A resident said: ’A great day, many visitors, it was good to see lots of people having a good time.’’
