Various stalls, games and a tea/coffee area were on offer. The many children were entertained with face painting and games such as ‘Hook-a-Duck’, ‘Tin Can Alley’ and ‘Hoopla’, not to mention young and not so young having a go at the ‘Coconut Shy’!!
Amazing support was received in the run up to and on the morning of the fair with families and friends more than willing to help to support the fundraising which just proved the community spirit that exists within Kingsland Care Centre. A great response from local businesses was received in raffle prizes from vouchers for Tesco, Marks & Spencer, local butchers, flower shop, hairdressers, beauticians, Art and Framing and McCully’s Furnishings, as well as a voucher for a well-earned neck and head massage!
A spectacular total of £915 was raised. These funds will be used towards a new therapeutic and sensory garden for residents and their families to enable them to enjoy the fresh air whilst having the opportunity to grow their own fruit, vegetables and flowers in purpose-built raised beds. Having an outside space is so important to the wellbeing of residents and Kingsland Care Centre / Larchwood Care (NI) Ltd are delighted that the fundraising event has given a great financial boost to kick-start the new venture.
Kingsland’s Summer Fair was a great success and are already planning ahead for their Christmas Fair and Santa’s Grotto! So if you, or a loved one are looking for nursing care in a beautiful setting, please call Kingsland Care Centre or visit their website.
