Garden Party a Resounding Success

Last Saturday we held our afternoon Garden Party at our care centre on Melton Road.

Initially the weather didn't look very promising as the morning brought rain, hail and thunder but fortunately as guests started to arrive they brought the sunshine along with them, which remained with us for majority of the afternoon.

With the help and support of wonderful volunteers a wide array of stalls were on offer including strawberry cream teas, a cake stall, garden stall, pimms and lemonade, garden games, and a jewellery stall, as well entertainment from djembe drummers, a guitarist and a magician. Guests also had a chance to play our raffle and tombola, thanks to kind donations from various donors.

Over 200 people attended the day and in total everyone helped to raised an amazing £1835 to support our work. I would just like to publicly thank all of those people for coming, as well our volunteers who always give their time so tirelessly and all the donors who helped make the day possible.
