People enjoyed a day of fun in the sun when a Wisbech care home held a summer fete.

Orchard House at Money Bank had a host of events taking place including a bouncy castle, face painting, tarot cards, manager in stocks, cakes, hot dogs, popcorn, ice creams, family games, a coconut shy and a soccer shoot out.

Co-ordinator Sarah Clifton said the day had a good turn-out with the sunshine helping to make the day a great success.

The day was raising money for the Comfort Fund, a residents fund-raising money pot for activities and events at the home.

Manager Peter Heron said: “We were very happy with the amount of people that turned out to enjoy the day and we raised plenty of funds to provide activities for the coming year.”
