Folk singers and exotic animals raise £1,000 for residents paying for care
A summer fete at a Lutterworth care home raised some £1,000 for its residents paying for care.
Folk singers and exotic animals entertained guests at the Sutton-in-the-Elms Care Home, according to the Lutterworth Mail.
The money is to go towards a day out for the residents, with previous funds raised paying for trips to the sea-side, garden centres and pub lunches.
The home's activities co-ordinator Elaine Adamson told the newspaper: "I enjoy organising these events as it gives us a chance to give something back to the residents.
"Days like this are brilliant. And I absolutely love this job, it is so rewarding."
In other news, those paying for care at Pinehurst Care Centre in Crowthorne enjoyed a Spanish-themed party, raising £500 in the process, reports GetBracknell.
The colourful fiesta featured matadors and flamenco dancers as well as a raffle, tombola and guess the weight of the cake stall.
