Staff at Hickathrift House Care Home in Marshland St James raised £922.50 towards an interactive sensory table by holding a bingo night.
The fundraiser at Tilney St Lawrence Village Hall was hosted by carers from the home, Julie Price and Lisa Tibbs.
They also had the help of Marion Phillips, who wanted the residents at the home to have the dementia-friendly equipment.
Laura Archer, administrator at Barchester Healthcare – which runs the care home – said: “The OMI interactive sensory table is a specialist system that responds to gesture and movement creating dynamic images on any surface.
“These can motivate and inspire with engaging content. It can stimulate language, physical and mental development and encourages active participation.”
