Ashridge Court Care Centre held their annual Summer Fete on Saturday 29th July, and despite the British weather not being on their side it didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits. The team dressed up the home with bunting, gazebo’s outside and a sweet cart!
The wealth of donations had started to build in the reception leading up to the day, with an array of fantastic prizes up for grabs for the tombola. From Domino’s pizza vouchers, cuddly toys, luxurious food & wine hampers to a 30 minute lesson in an aircraft, it was sure to be a wonderful day of celebrations.
There was something for everyone to do, whether big or small. With a wonderful selection of cakes and savoury treats to keep everyone’s hunger at bay. The yoga demonstration, hook a duck competition, bottle tombola and the main tombola with all those fantastic prizes, was sure to keep everyone entertained – there was even a chance to soak the managers! You could also find yourself hand made items from Gwen the activity co-coordinator at Ashridge, who was selling some beautiful hand made cards, perfect for any occasion.
It was one of the residents to win that very special prize of 30 mins in a light aircraft, the team can’t wait to hear all about it!
All the sales from the day including entry to the fete, which was just 50p, was all donated to the Alzheimer’s Society. Incredibly the team, friends, family and the residents raised an amazing £837.34! A huge congratulations to everyone that donated to a really fantastic charity.
