Greenhaw Lodge Care Home in Derry / Londonderry held its Garden Fete on Saturday 6th August. Luckily the Irish weather was kind to visitors during the Greenhaw Lodge Garden Fete.
The event involved live music by local musician Tommy McGlinchey. Residents and visitors enjoyed a jive to memorable tracks of yesteryear with a slice of comedy in between tunes for good measure. A finger food buffet was also on offer with a varied range of delicious food complemented by hot and cold drinks.
Local Tesco ‘Community Champions’ worked alongside staff at Greenhaw Lodge to decorate the garden in preparation for the seasonal event. Tesco donated raffle prizes to raise money for the Residents Comfort Fund and provided a selection of cakes and confectionary. Children weren’t left out, goodie bags filled with fun colouring books and stickers ensured younger visitors could indulge in some colour creativity.
Raffle prizes ranged from an overnight stay in a 4-star hotel to an electric toothbrush, kitchen appliances and a selection of hampers to name a few! Raffle ticket sales went through the roof as visitors became aware of what was up for grabs helping to raise just under £300. Greenhaw Lodge believe that ‘our residents do not live in our work, we work in their home’ and firmly extend the offer of: ‘Our door is always open’.
