Fenland care home raises �500 for residents at summer fete

DESPITE the dreadful weather a Fenland care home still managed to enjoy a summer fete on Saturday raising more than �500 for its residents.

Glenfield Care Home, in Money Bank, Wisbech, had to bring stalls inside and cancel a car boot sale due to the heavy rain.

Managers also escaped facing wet sponges in the stocks because of the day’s downpour but �523 was still raised for the residents’ comfort fund which allows staff to take more people on outings.

KJ Entertainments provided balloon modelling which proved a hit with staff and residents who have left various creations, including poppies and an aeroplane, around the home.

Birmingham Salvation Army Band then provided a boost on the Sunday by playing music in what turned out to be slightly nicer weather.
